As the fourth largest island in the world, Madagascar is a country with varied landscapes and is home to thousands of flora and fauna species not found anywhere else! Unfortunately, many of the rainforests are disappearing and the population increase has a damaging impact on the island's ecology.
We aim to provide local communities, governments and international conservation agencies with the information needed to design and implement management plans to protect the area's ecosystems. Participants undergo extensive training in order to be qualified in surveying techniques. We recommend that volunteers stay for a minimum of 6 weeks as time can limit your involvement.
Volunteer work consists of:
3 - 20 weeks
