Just over 300 km north of Andavadoaka, Blue Ventures is working with the people of Belo sur Mer to establish a community-based natural resource management structure, following the successful Velondriake model. This past November, the Be Andriaky Committee held the first opening of its pilot mangrove reserves, after a 3-month test closure designed to allow crab populations to recuperate while implementing a locally-enforced fishing season. The reserve opening was a big success, leaving the community enthusiastic to close the reserve again and strengthen its community-based management structure. Watch the film to see and hear the outcome.
