Lagon Bleu is a an NGO based on the South coast of Mauritius. The organization specialises in marine conservation and monitoring to support the preservation of Mauritius unique'a wildlife.
They aim to attract young volunteers to support their goals and gain experience monitoring marine wildlife.
ECO-SUD's objectives are to:
- Defend all species and/or sites threatened by damage or destruction on the Mauritian territory;
- Protect the environment;
- Raise public awareness on ecological issues;
- Promote equilibrium between economic development and environmental protection;
From the beginning, the Lagon Bleu has a good working relation with the Ministry of Fisheries, the Research Center in Albion (AFRC), the Mauritius Oceanography Institute (MOI) and the specialised NGOs MMCS (Mauritius Marine Conservation Society), the MUG (Mauritius Underwater Group), the MSDA (Mauritius Scuba Diving Association), Reef Mauritius, Forever Blue and Shoals Rodrigues. Eco-Sud often worked with the above mentioned organisations to promote marine environment protection.
The organization has also developed good relations with local fishermen and boat-men. The blue Lagoon project will be an opportunity for us to strengthen our relationship with these local actors and to work together with them, and so, in their best interest.
