The Sanctuary is delighted to have been selected as a beneficiary of an IUCN BIOPAMA Action Component Medium Grant to the value of nearly EUR 200 000. This eighteen-month project will see the Sanctuary partnering with the Chingonguene community of artisanal and subsistence fishers resident within the protected area to improve conservation of threatened and endangered sharks and rays in the Inhamambane Estuary mouth, while bringing tangible benefits to the community.
