Andika-sur-Mer reserve opening: A photo diary

Andika-sur-Mer, a vezo fishing village of just over 200 people located about 20 kilometers south of Morondava on Madagascar’s west coast, closed their first temporary mangrove reserve in December of 2011. In this photo slide-show, our Conservation Coordinator, Brian Jones, captures some of the sights from the opening day.

Conservation Coordinator
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.
