Sustainable fish trap exchange helping preserve Wasini Island waters
Our field rep in East Africa reports that a hundred traditional and eco-friendly fishing traps have been distributed on Wasini Island, helping locals fish their waters sustainably.
Wasini fishermen exchanged their old traps for the new ones, which were made from local plant materials and feature “escape gaps” allowing sea turtles and juvenile fish to go free.
We’re funding this trap exchange in support of a 1,532-acre sustainable fishing reserve.
