The project is aiming at the protection and conservation of 40 ha of sea grass through the establishment and protection of a community conservation area aiming at increasing fish stock which will help to improve the fish habitat and increase biodiversity in Community Fisheries areas. The project also provides education to communities to appreciate and protect environmental resources which could lead to a decrease or end of illegal fishing. In addition to that the project will empower women in participation and leadership in group management through organizing them 3 saving groups (10-15 women each) to participate in protection and conservation of natural resources and actively take part in other community activities.
