"Blue Ventures has huge potential to change things for the better in Madagascar. Having visited communities that Blue Ventures is working with, I've been able to see how conservation has changed the future for coastal communities for the better. Blue Ventures is the pillar that Madagascar needs, to strengthen its capacity for marine conservation and environmental governance."
