Presentation on Microbusinesses in Blue Bay, Mauritius

We have been working in Blue Bay Marine Park over the last few months with our good friends at the University of Mauritius’ social science department: Dr Ajit Rambaree and Brita Backlund.  The aim of this work has been to look at the impact of the MPA on local micro-businesses, and find out micro-business’ owners’ and workers’ knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of the Park.  It was great to also be able to work with and train several enthusiastic Mauritian students.  We recently presented this work at the University of Mauritius Research Week, the theme of this great event was ‘Sustainable Development and Innovation’.
