Under The Wave is a Non-Profit Organization located at Matemwe, in the North-East of Zanzibar. The NGO was created in 2021 by Scubafish previous owner, Yong Mi Janse and our current manager & marine biologist, Laura Rosset.
We have a strong desire to protect the marine life in the North East of Zanzibar.
Matemwe present one of the most beautiful coral reefs of Zanzibar. It displays a high diversity of marine life: sea turtles, bottlenose dolphins & hundreds of fish species. However, for some years, the increasing activities of tourism and local fisheries around Mnemba atoll are putting more pressure on the reef and in long term may killed it. It is important to start protecting the reef and to help local.
Our focus is to help students from three local schools learn about the wonders of marine ecosystems.
Through innovative methods such as interactive games, engaging presentations, and captivating field trips, we explore 10 vital marine topics, nurturing a new generation of ocean protectors
