Marine conservation: Watching and Monitoring
Avoid illegal fishing to preserve and improve the biodiversity and the biomass of the sea life ot this Slawesi area is our main target. Villagers are allowed to fish inside the protected area, but only with traditional equipment. Watching the area with regular patrols, on land and at sea, in order to avoid illegal fishing is our top priority. We are training some villagers to become rangers with the participation of the local police. We also plan to use drone to minimize the costs. The biomass did significatively increase since we started to take action, sharks and Napoleon Wrasses are back and many other species are follow.
