Coastal Environmental Watch Organization

Coastal Environmental Watch Organization Sierra Leone (CEWO SL) is a community-based organization focused on the preservation of the coastal environment of Sierra Leone, especially towards preserving all marine species most especially those under threat of extinction including mangroves. CEWO’s core mandate also extends to raising awareness and conducting training on the management of coastal environments in the Sherbro River Estuary, Bonthe District. Although much has been done to raise awareness towards preserving the environment, especially marine species, the inhabitants of communities where such sensitization had been conducted, have reversed to their usual unsustainable lifestyles ignoring the best practices of conserving the environment.
