Chumbe Island

The Chumbe Island Coral Park is a unique privately managed nature reserve developed and managed by the Chumbe Island Coral Park Ltd. (CHICOP). It is a rare example of a still pristine coral island ecosystem in an otherwise heavily overfished and over-exploited area.
The reserve includes a reef sanctuary, which has become the first gazetted marine park in Tanzania, and a forest reserve. With Chumbe being located upstream of the most important fishing grounds opposite Zanzibar's capital, Stone Town, the Chumbe reef provides a protected breeding ground for fish, corals and other species which can then spread out to re-colonize nearby overfished and degraded areas.
