Our executive partner Cordio East Africa started conducting awareness campaign to fishermen at Mwaembe and Mkunguni Beach Management Units on the significance of sharks in the ocean, threats and various ways to limit the declining shark populations. Documentaries were shown and a special session “tales of the ocean” was held where old fishermen narrated their fishing stories and how shark fishing has changed over the years. All this is part of our shark & ray conservation project we started with Cordio in November 2020 in Kenya. Meanwhile we are exploring options to reduce capture of sharks as by-catch. Discussions are held with gillnet fishermen what options are available for them to use nets that do not target sharks. Read more about this project
