Several international organisations (United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), UN Foundation, International Coral Reef Action Network (ICRAN) and Conservation International (CI)) have joined forces with WWF to provide funding for the conservation of Mozambique’s unique marine habitat and wildlife in and around the country’s Primeiras and Segundas Islands. The new partnership will complement the efforts of the government of Mozambique in implementing an integrated development plan for the region’s marine and coastal resources. This will include working with locals on sustainable fish and prawn management, and promoting tourism development in the region.
