Located about 25 miles from the Tanzanian coast, Zanzibar is an archipelago that sits in the Indian Ocean. Spanning 60 miles long and 20 miles wide, Zanzibar is known for its sandy beaches and fringing coral reefs, but the island of Zanzibar also offers a window into a melting pot of cultures and influences with its rich and colorful history that dates back to the 1500s. Today, Zanzibar represents a great challenge to conservation with its high and rapidly growing human population, tourism development and fragile wildlife and marine environment. Various initiatives are much needed to ensure a more sustainable future for the island, its local people and nature. We invite you to make a donation to help support the ongoing work to ensure a positive future for this unique island.
Asilia Giving - Projects IN ZANZIBAR
OTHER AREAS WE SUPPORT
We take an area approach towards improving livelihoods and protecting nature in some of the most unique corners of Africa. The areas we support include 6 uniique geographic regions across East Africa — the Greater Mara, the Serengeti, Tarangire, Rubondo Island, Matemwe, and Ruaha. In each of these areas, we engage with local communities, authorities and partner organizations to support projects and initiatives that address some of the key long-term challenges, priorities and measures for a given area.
Asilia believes that tourism should make a lasting positive impact on both nature and people. Proviging area support to local communities and the environment is an integral part of Asilia's identity and vision. Asilia maintains multi-year relationships with local communities, provides concrete educational support to 16 primary schools and offers funding to carnivore conservation and research throughout East Africa. Collaborating with partners on the ground, Asilia's goal is to make a real difference.
