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.
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.
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.
