Project objectives

This project aims to stabilise populations of threatened fauna and lemurs at Makirovana-Tsihomanaomby and Ankarabolava-Agnakatrika. It will do so by covering costs and uniform requirements for rangers, and by introducing the local community to projects that will improve their livelihoods such as gardening and beekeeping.

This project is implemented by Missouri Botanical Garden.
