It is our Blue Venture's aim to translate the success they had in Africa in Belize. Blue Venture programs have had a long-term impact in south west Madagascar, where Blue Ventures have worked for over 6 years, in terms of improving the quality of life in the local community, real increases in local key fishing stocks, preservation of at-risk species, development of alternative livelihoods and education opportunities.
Blue Ventures offer innovative ideas to communities and support the implementation of these. Their work has won a number of awards, including the UN SEED and Equator prizes, for sustainable development, poverty reduction and conservation. For volunteers, leadership and research skills can be development as well as a unique experience of being an integral part of a start-up project.
