Pyai Nemo and Bambu — Empowering Local Communities to Manage their Resources
In the heart of the Bird’s Head Seascape lay two island chains, Pyai Nemo and Bambu. The islands surrounding communities have sustainably thrived on these waters for centuries. However, in recent years, poaching, bomb fishing and illegal fishing have threatened their way of life. With support from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, CI and local partners, these communities now have the resource they need to reverse the damage.
