There’s Hope Waiting For Nature In The Dark


I was the happiest person as I watched residents of Mida Creek narrate how conservation education and awareness has enabled them to embrace conservation of the environment. Mangrove deforestation has been the major threat to this amazing ecosystem and that’s how the watamu marine association and other stakeholders have been working tirelessly to educate the community on the importance of conserving it. The community has responded positively and are willing to learn the alterative way of earning their daily bread that does not involves killing the environment. They are have also come up with projects that help to plant mangrove nurseries for replanting. There are women projects that offer tour guiding through the walk board at fee, they get to educate the visitors on the importance of mangroves and the ecosystem at large.

This is great news for conservation. Mangroves helpes to absorb the carbon in the atmosphere hence very vital with the current climate change and global warming. The mangroves can only thrive in the coastal areas so it is extremely important to protect them from extinction. This confirms the hope the nature in the dark, step by step we will manage to conserve our environment and save mother nature.
Mida Creek is found in Watamu, it stretches from the ocean into the Arabuko-Sokoke forest, Kenya. Its habitat is of different types influenced by the tides : mangrove forest, open shallow waters, sand flats and mud flats.It is surrounded by extensive mangroves and palms. It provides a home to a variety of species from corals, fish, turtles and migratory birds. It is essential for the survival of the migratory birds.
Mida Creek is one of the most productive mangrove ecosystem in the world. Combined with the Arabuko-Sokoke, they form UNESCO biosphere reserve.
Activities that can be enjoyed at this creek include ; kayaking, boat riding, waterboarding, waterskiing, birdwatching, etc. The biggest attraction is the 260 meters walk board that allows people to enjoy the view of the mida creek.
