Tom Mullikin has had the opportunity to conduct research during his scuba diving trips near Zanzibar. He was able to learn of the fragile ecosystem and the effects that global warming has had on this unique underwater environment. 

Zanzibar is an archipelago made up of Zanzibar and Pemba Islands, and several islets. It is located in the Indian Ocean, about 25 miles from the Tanzanian coast.  It is characterized by beautiful sandy beaches with fringing coral reefs, and the magic of historic Stone Town - said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa.  Zanzibar is very rich in both flora and fauna.
