June 13th, 2013: Farming Sea Cucumbers in Madagascar for Economic Hope and Conservation is featured in the National Geographic.



Taylor Mayol writes about the locally managed aquaculture farms that have begun sprouting up in shallow bays around Velondriake, introducing environmentally sustainable sea cucumber ranching as a simple source of cash for the Vezo people of Madgascar. "This isn't just another doom-and-gloom story about how the oceans are being stripped to satisfy human appetite. There is a new glimmer of hope for both sea cucumbers and Vezo communities".
