Project objectives

One forest fragment will be effectively conserved by a local community association. Another three or four priority forests will be identified, and community-based conservation activities initiated at each. Lemur hunting will be eliminated, and habitat degradation reduced, in each forest. Populations of Crowned Sifaka, Mongoose Lemur and Red Brown Lemur will stabilize in each forest, and start to increase during the course of the project.

This project is implemented by The Aspinall Foundation.
