We're looking for keen conservation volunteers to work in the south east of Madagascar at our beachfront lemur reserve. We need general conservation volunteers (no experience required) for stays of between 2 weeks and 10 weeks.
The difference between volunteering with our organisation and with other programs is that we have clear and transparent goals and our work is direct habitat conservation. We don't tell you about vague contributions to unnamed conservation plans. We don't constantly do the same research year after year that is never used or published. With us, you'll be living in and working with the habitat and wildlife that you are protecting. Our work is mainly practical and often physical. If we are doing research, you'll meet the principal researcher and you'll be able to discuss the study.
But conservation isn't just research, it's usually far less glamorous.
Your contribution to our work pays for local people from the local community to work in our reserve. We do not have foreign offices or fancy overheads, every penny you pay towards volunteering with us is spent in Madagascar.
We think you should choose us because: we spend your contribution in Madagascar and for conservation; we don't pretend to be anything that we are not; nothing is faked for your entertainment; we don't create activity just to give you experience or make you feel important; this is real grass-roots habitat conservation in one of the most spectacular beach-front forests; you will have close encounters with wildlife every day; our director has 15 experience welcoming volunteers to Madagascar; your health and safety are our principal concern.
We are proud members of the Lemur Conservation Network #strongertogether
