Restoring and Protecting Vital Mangrove Ecosystems Along Kilifi Creek

Mangrove Replanting in Kibokoni


Mangroves, important for wood and breeding grounds for fish, are faced with the threat of degradation in order to satisfy human needs.


Kibokoni village in collaboration with COMRED, Pwani University, Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute, and the Fisheries Department, with funding from the government of Kenya (National Commission for Science, Technology and Innovation), started a mangrove restoration programme while advocating for mangrove protection in conjunction with Kenya Forest Service.
