Alcance ambiental y desarrollo comunitario

EMPOWERING FISHERS TO PROTECT MARINE BIODIVERSITY

Creemos que el conocimiento y la comprensión son la clave para un futuro mejor para Cabo Verde y, en última instancia, para el planeta. Nuestro programa de alcance ambiental y desarrollo comunitario integra a las comunidades con nuestras iniciativas de conservación para que se conviertan en parte de los esfuerzos de protección.

Esta iniciativa, que abarca generaciones y culturas, trabaja para inspirar una conciencia ambiental entre la comunidad para proteger la vida silvestre más vulnerable de la isla y los ecosistemas de los que dependen.

Illegal fishing methods are a significant contributor to the decline in local fish stock. As part of the programme, fishers participate in ongoing workshops and trainings regarding fisheries legislation and best practices for sustainable fisheries, and are supported with supplies that help improve fish catch hygiene and reduce marine pollution.

The Guardians of the Sea also monitor and report illegal fishing infractions and marine life capture that contribute to fisheries decline. With better knowledge of the scope of the problem, the results can contribute essential data that can aid in informing better fisheries policy on both a local and national level.

Fishers participate in a series of workshops to enhance their knowledge of fisheries biology, and the environmental impact of illegal fishing activities on both the ecosystem and their catch size. By establishing a personal connection to the health of the ecosystem, fishers are inspired to adhere to sustainable practices in the long term.
