SAVING OUR OCEANS, AND THE CREATURES LIVING IN IT, ONE PROJECT AT TIME.
What started as an ambitious project to build a luxury boutique hotel on a private island, has given birth to a massive venture to create a sustainable safe haven for wildlife, particularly marine, on and around Fogo Island, off the North Coast of Mozambique. Read our story, that has attracted global interest, and see how you can get involved in saving our oceans, one project at a time.

Our Projects

Through our efforts to understand locals' harvesting of endangered marine life, we realised that in order to protect the animals, we must offer an alternative source of sustenance and income. We are establishing several skills development projects, aquaculture farms, and building tourism in the area, to create job opportunities for local communities.

Fish Farm

Fish Farm The threat to animal species is a complex subject. Anthropogenically speaking, the issues cannot be completely attributed to serving greed and medicinal traditions, since a major contributing factor is overpopulation.

Woodwork

Woodwork Northern Mozambique possesses some of the highest quality hardwood in the world. As such, the area has been subject to irresponsible over-harvesting, which has almost depleted the natural forest.

Turtle Monitoring

At present, we have two teams rotating on Ilha Do Fogo. They are responsible for the maintenance of the runway and also keep the beach and reef free of plastic. These individuals have had no training (yet) as resources are limited.

Our presence

As all the Fire Island Conservation Projects are self-funded at this point, we use a portion of the profits generated from our private lodges to assist with the conservation projects, and tourism will always play a key role in the sustainability of these projects.
