A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the Eco-Tourism and Marine Conservation project in Zanzibar, Tanzania! 

39 conservation club students recently took their module 3 test and will be going on a fieldtrip in the next few weeks to celebrate all those who passed! 

We are excited to report that in the last month four drivers graduated from the Ethical Dolphin Tour Workshops, started their new dolphin tours, and are receiving incredibly positive feedback from tourists! They completed five weeks of in-class lessons and two weeks of lessons in the ocean. 

Every Monday and Thursday the boat drivers attend an English lesson which is beneficial for talking to tourists, booking tours, and sharing their conservation knowledge. We have two different classes for the drivers who are at different levels. 

We are looking forward to seeing the continued impact that this project has on the marine life, ocean, and community in Zanzibar!

Thank you again for making this possible.

For the Conservation Education project, the students have been hard at work finishing up their last module. In return, 25 students went on an amazing field trip to Zala Park. They went on a nature walk, learned about plant and animal conservation, and did a great game of animal charades! 

The kids have now started module 3. In Zanzibar, like other island locations around the world, is one of the most vulnerable to climate change and rising oceans. We taught our students about the effects of climate change by building a little “earth” out of sand and used frozen bottles of water to symbolize the world’s glaciers. Slowly during the lesson, the ice melted. The kids could observe how the land slowly flooded the paper houses and animals that we had built because of the “rising oceans” due to warming temperatures and melting glaciers. They were very interested to physically observe how global warming effects the planet slowly but steadily over time. 

The ethical boat driver workshops have been going great with seven new participants! Additionally, three boat drivers graduated and we are so proud of them!

Thank you to eveyrone who has supported conservation efforts in Zanzibar - we are making tremendous steps forward!
