Blue Ventures Launches New Malagasy Scholarship Programme to Promote Conservation Awareness

Blue Ventures is proud to announce the formation of a scholarship to support Malagasy nationals with an interest in marine conservation.

The scholarship will fund a Malagasy national every six weeks to join a marine research expedition at our coastal site in Andavadoaka, Madagascar, 45 km south of Morombe.

Every six weeks our field site in Andavadoaka hosts approximately 12 international paying volunteers who come to learn about the marine environment and participate in active research projects. These projects are led by a staff that includes international ecologists, Malagasy biologists and social scientists. During the six-week expeditions, volunteers and the Malagasy scholars will gain valuable biological and social research experiences. In addition, the living environment promotes exchange between people from many different cultures.
