Rick Hearne and Rob Garner, of Forest Based Solutions, measure and take inventory of confiscated illegally harvested Madagascar Rosewood.

Rick Hearne and Rob Garner, of Forest Based Solutions, were hired by The World Bank as consultants to travel to Madagascar to take inventory and estimate the value of confiscated, illegally harvested Madagascar Rosewood.  They reported their findings at a conference attended by the World Bank and local authorities in hopes of devising a management plan to process the Rosewood.  Rick thoroughly enjoyed his maiden trip to this part of Africa, making many friends along the way – both human and furry.

Would you like to hear more about this trip?  Rick Hearne will be sharing this story as a slide show presentation at our 2019 Open House –  Friday, October 4th & Saturday, October 5th.
