I will be overseeing Blue Venture’s growing portfolio of outreach partnerships with like-minded organisations in community-based marine conservation and fisheries management across the West Indian Ocean. I have 8 years operational & project management experience in various fields. Most recently I spent 3 years leading dolphin & marine conservation, English education & community empowerment projects on the island of Unguja, Zanzibar.
I have a huge passion for marine life & empowering communities to take the lead in preserving their habitat and natural resources. I’ve volunteered and worked with 12 conservation & education programs in 7 countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, which I consider my second home. I will take any opportunity to experience a new culture or country, especially if it’s a good spot for bird watching.
