“It doesn’t take too long after arrival to realise how big of a need there is for conservation efforts in Mozambique.  The ignorance of ocean life among adults, the finning market’s draw on local people, and a lack of exposure to marine education in schools, all create an environment that is destructive to marine life and will remain so without intervention.  LTO’s conservation efforts are multi-pronged and comprehensive in trying to deal with all of these issues, something by which I was very impressed.  There is no easy solution to the issues faced in Guinjata, but I feel that LTO’s plan of action is solid and will contribute to lasting change in the community.  As a volunteer, I definitely felt like the work I was doing was meaningful!”
