... There are only about 2,500 left and they are a protected species.

We then toured a mangrove swamp. They have built a boardwalk through it. Mangroves grow in salt water and are important for 2 reasons. They protect the shoreline from erosion and also they are a breeding ground for many species who, when mature, return to the ocean. Very tall trees and a dense system of roots.

It took us over two hours on the dala-dala to reach the North side of the island. We got off the bus in Nungwi, a dusty, but charming little village on the coast. We passed by a shipyard, where they were constructing big wooden boats, which are called 'dhows'. Quite impressive! Then Abdi took me to the turtle farm, a local eco project for the protection of sea turtles. The locals used to catch sea turtles for their meat and shells, up until the point they ...
