ABOUT THE CO-FOUNDERS

reefscapers.jpg

Marie Saleem & Thomas Le Berre

Reefscapers was founded by Thomas Le Berre and Marie Saleem, a couple passionate about the underwater world and in love with the beauty and mystery of coral reefs.

Marie worked as a Reef Ecologist at the Maldivian Government’s Marine Research Centre from 1993 to 2009. One of her many projects was the management of shark and aquarium fisheries, and she remains passionately involved with shark conservation to this day. She is now a respected international consultant, working on shark conservation with a team of NGOs around the world. The ‘Global Shark Campaign‘ helps governments implement management measures to protect sharks and rays.

 

Thomas is a French coastal oceanographer. He moved to South East Asia in 1999 and has been living and working in the Maldives and Sri Lanka ever since. He founded Seamarc (‘Systems Engineering and Marine Consulting’) in 2000. As well as running Reefscapers’, Thomas continues to develop unique cutting-edge solutions to solve pressing environmental issues.
