National Geographic Explorer Dr. Christopher Golden and his team of Harvard Planetary Health Scholars spent six weeks in Madagascar to better understand the human health impacts of environmental change. This series of stories will document this journey across Madagascar through their personal experiences.
In the face of climate change and dwindling fish populations due to unsustainable fishing practices, seafood-dependent populations in northeastern Madagascar have hope in recovering their fisheries through improved management decisions and stewardship practices. In this way, marine conservation and fisheries management efforts can be seen as a public health intervention to support the nutrition and food security of these malnourished populations. Please watch this beautifully developed film shot and directed by Geoffrey Gaspard and written and produced by Christopher Golden.
