Kitty Brayne


Head of Technical Support
Bristol, UK

In her role as Head of Technical Support, Kitty is responsible for overseeing the technical development of Blue Ventures’ approaches, and promoting the sharing of knowledge and learning. Kitty’s own technical focus is community-led conservation, and she coordinates with other technical specialists across the organisation (in fisheries, mangroves, aquaculture, community health) to ensure that field teams working with communities and partners have the support they need.

Kitty studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, before running projects engaging people in nature and its conservation in the UK. She then spent four years based in Anjouan, in the Comoros, contributing to the creation and development of local NGO Dahari, while leading the development of community outreach programmes and tools. This led onto a role with project partner the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust within their Madagascar programme.

Kitty joined Blue Ventures in early 2014 as manager for the Madagascar country programme, including supporting the development of the MIHARI network. In late 2016 she moved back to her native UK to join the headquarters team, and now works from Blue Ventures’ Bristol office. 

Kitty speaks fluent French and good Malagasy, and is a keen cyclist and fiddle player.
