Gund Fellow and Alum Brendan Fisher on: “Farming, Fishing and Small Miracles in Mozambique”

Gund Fellow and 2006 Alum, Brendan Fisher, is a Research Scientist at WWF.  At WWF, Brendan's work focuses on testing the impacts of conservation interventions on livelihoods and the impacts of development interventions on conservation objectives – with an emphasis on work taking place in coastal East Africa and Southeast Asia.

Brendan recently returned from Mozambique after collecting data for a joint WWF and CARE project on conservation and livelihoods in the Primeiras e Segundas region in northern Mozambique.  A blog by Brendan about that trip is available on WWF’s website and has been featured on Yahoo! and Live Science
