People & Leadership

The facility opened its doors in 2016 with a wish to give back and generate opportunity for both local communities as well as international citizens.

The Bazaruto Center for Scientific Studies (BCSS) and its founder Nina Flohr care immensely for its people and the surrounding local community. We employ between 70-80% of our team from local communities, with the remainder joining internationally. Our multicultural research and management team, along with the station staff, come from all backgrounds and cultures. Above all we pride honesty, effort and transparency. Our scientific team brings together young professionals who are recognized as leaders in their respective research fields. They come to the Bazaruto Archipelago to further their scientific careers and also to nurture a new generation of aspiring individuals.
