I’m delighted to let you know that the text book Environment and Sustainability in Zanzibar is now available on Ecologue – free to download, both in English and Kiswahili, and you can download it chapter by chapter.
The book was published by Chumbe Island Coral Park back in 2011, and thousands of copies were printed and distributed to Zanzibar schools and communities. But there are still many more who have not seen it who might like to, so I am sharing it on my website to make it easy to share and access.
