About us

Under The Wave is a Non-Profit Organization located at Matemwe, in the North-East of Zanzibar. The NGO was created by Scubafish Zanzibar dive center owners and two marine biologists, Laura & Ludovic.

We have a strong desire to protect the marine life in the North East of Zanzibar.

One of the jewels of Zanzibar is Mnemba atoll, located in the North of Matemwe. The atoll 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 communities in order to develop more sustainable fishing practices.
