The Saint-Martin Nature Reserve hosted the Director of the National Marine Reserve of Reunion as well as the reserve’s Head of Surveillance and Police Unit in June 2013. Nicolas Maslach and Franck Roncuzzi reciprocated this visit by going to Reunion in September as part of the program to exchange good practices between natural protected areas. Franck Roncuzzi took advantage of this to form a companionship with the Marine Reserve in Reunion with regards to the policing aspects of nature and mooring techniques. Invited by the Reunion region and the Minister of Economy, Nicolas Maslach attended the International Conference on Sustainable Development of Tourism in Islands, set up by the World Tourism Organization and the French government. The conservationist presented “his” reserve, as well as a presentation on the effects climate change is having on the island habitats. Amongst the audience present were numerous ministers and tourist managers who came from the world over.
