Beekeeping and Mangrove Protection in Zanzibar

Symbolic picture

The project aims to link beekeeping to multifunctional trees that are used as an alternative to endangered mangroves. These trees provide a source of food for the bees as well as cattle, supply firewood, and improve soil quality. By linking beekeeping with sustainable forest use, we can create awareness of the important functions of mangrove forests in coastal areas, thus contributing to reducing their overexploitation and the deforestation of these critical ecosystems in Zanzibar.
