Brian has been working with communities in Madagascar in conservation and natural resource management since 2006. His six years based in the field have allowed him to integrate into the Malagasy language and culture, providing him with a solid understanding of the challenges rural fishing communities face in managing their resources. He helped BV 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, as Conservation Coordinator, Brian oversees all community-based management activities across BV’s field sites in Madagascar, and plays an active role in liaising with partner organisations and government authorities.
