Brian has been working with communities in Madagascar on conservation and sustainable natural resource management since 2006. This experience allowed him to integrate into the Malagasy culture, providing a solid understanding of the challenges that coastal communities face in managing their resources. He helped Blue Ventures open their second field site in Belo sur Mer in 2009, and was instrumental in supporting fishing communities to develop an award-winning temporary mangrove reserve model.
Now based in the city of Toliara, Brian oversees all community conservation activities across Blue Ventures' field sites in Madagascar, and plays an active role in liaising with partner organisations and government authorities.
