Our Mission

Shoals Rodrigues provides scientific research, marine education, and community outreach and support in order to achieve the conservation of our marine ecosystem and support sustainable development on Rodrigues. 

Conservation of the marine environment around our island is vital because so many Rodriguans depend on the sea. We believe in the sustainable use of our natural resources, the need to respect our traditions and our unique marine natural heritage for the benefit of current and future generations.

To achieve our goals we work collaboratively with educators, volunteers and scientists. Our projects focus on working with and supporting fishermen and local communities. We provide marine education and training to school children as the conservation of our island in the future depends on them
