Underwater Africa Logo

Our conservation adventure began in 1992 when we fell in love with the idyllic waters of southern Mozambique and so started our history of  marine research & conservation. Over time, our love for these waters grew and we wanted to share this through the Underwater Africa volunteer
and connect volunteers with marine biologists.
For five years our scientists investigated Mozambique’s coastal reefs and threatened species, and provided training and education to local communities and the coastal police.

In 2020 we registered Mozambique’s first legally recognized Marine Foundation & Research Center. We aim to continue our legacy of Mozambican marine conservation by encouraging  local people to invest in the sustainability of their coastal resources.
