We empower coastal communities to manage their own resources, developing locally managed marine areas designed to sustain local fisheries and safeguard marine biodiversity.



fishing

We are a global leader in catalysing and financing marine conservation from the grassroots. We demonstrate the economic benefits of marine conservation to fishers and seafood buyers through temporary fishery closures.


endangered

We are working with coastal communities and private sector partners to develop economically lucrative, environmentally sustainable and socially viable alternatives to fishing. Our aquaculture initiative is providing coastal communities in southwest Madagascar with new sources of income while alleviating pressure on marine resources and improving food security.


blue-carbon-web

We are helping coastal communities in Madagascar to link the conservation of mangrove, seagrass and coastal wetland habitats with international carbon markets.


PHE

Our community health programme delivers health education and services in order to enable couples to make their own reproductive health choices, as part of our integrated Population-Health-Environment (PHE) approach in Madagascar.


investing

We support our partner communities to develop the skills they need to diversify their livelihoods and manage their marine resources sustainably. From school scholarships and environmental education through to conservation research courses for local graduates, our team works tirelessly to deliver training at all levels.


Students leaving school

We provide children in coastal southwest Madagascar with the educational opportunities they need to create paths out of poverty and support marine conservation within their communities. Please support this important initiative by making a regular donation. 


Our integrated education programme includes a variety of locally led initiatives, from classroom workshops and youth club sessions to village outreach tours and radio broadcasts. It supports young people to develop leadership and critical thinking skills, and to play an active role in marine conservation and community development.

We propose strategies for fairer and more sustainable fisheries management, with a view to benefiting the marine life and coastal communities that depend on them.

We manage the largest community-based shark and turtle fishery monitoring programme in the Western Indian Ocean region. We also run social marketing campaigns to promote the protection of these keystone species as part of Vezo cultural heritage.
