Training DGGC members and the local community on environmental conservation is for the purpose of empowering the people to protect and conserve the environment for prosperity and sustainable use. Training is offered by Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute (KMFRI), World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Kenya Forest Service (KFS) and various NGOs. The training has resulted in:

  • Restoration of various mangroves species through reforestation programmes
  • Stopping illegal methods of fishing, including use of poison and nets of small mesh size
  • Reduction of fishing pressure from Mida Creek
  • Sustaining Malindi-Watamu World Biosphere Reserve as part of the Marine Protected Areas of the Kenya coast.
