The Coastal Academy has been made possible thanks to the generous support of our donors and partners:

Coastal Academy Partners


Community Centred Conservation (C3) is a grassroots community-immersed NGO, focused on a two-way process for conservation; learning from local communities about their innate knowledge of environmental resources and at the same time providing them with the information they required from collaborative scientific studies to make their own decisions about sustainable resource management.
University of Antsiranana The Université d'Antsiranana is one of six public universities in Madagascar. Founded in 1976, it is situated in the town of Antsiranana or Diégo Suarez and has over 3000 students enrolled in two schools, three faculties and an institute.

Coastal Academy Donors

The Rufford Small Grants Foundation is a charity established specifically for the development of Rufford Small Grants for Nature Conservation (RSGs), which are aimed at small conservation programmes and pilot projects.

The Coastal Academy was established through a grant from the Rufford Small Grants Foundation.

Oxygene Diving Surrey

Oxygene Diving Surrey have generously donated enough money fund-raised by the club to run a course to teach students internationally-recognised monitoring methods for coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass.

In addition they have donated huge quantities of snorkelling equipment that will allow students to practice the skills they learn in the classroom, ensuring their ability to monitor and manage some of Madagascar's most threatened ecosystems.

Royal Society for the Protection of Birds The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds has donated several valuable items of field equipment for use by students of the Coastal Academy.
