The Island

One Minute South is located on the Western shore of Bulago Island, 0°01’S of the Equator. Bulago Island is at the centre of East Africa’s first and only fresh water marine reserve, enacted through Parliament in 2007, creating a 200 square kilometer protected zone. The Lacustrine Protected Area (LPA) will be promoting the replenishment of severely depleted fish stocks and the reintroduction of sport fishing tourism.

Superimposed over the fish reserve we plan the return to natural wilderness, creating a Nature Reserve by working hand in hand with the relevant government ministries, to reduce and then reverse the detrimental effects of deforestation, lake pollution and illegal fishing practices. We have also partnered with Roofings Forever Forestry  to reforest, reduce soil degradation and employ permacultural,  agricultural methods on Bulago and surrounding islands, see KuoKoa for more information.

The islands within the reserve provide a natural sanctuary for the ever-endangered African wild life. Animals and birds will be given refuge within this government protected reserve. Bulago Island will have zebras and antelope, a sanctuary for the endangered Sitatunga and another in the forest for Colobus monkeys.
