Project objectives

By the end of this project the team estimates that:

  • Some 70% of the households consulted and trained are aware of and understand the interest of lemurs targeted;
  • Dependence on natural resources is reduced to 50% for 200 households;
  • The pressures causing the quantitative and qualitative loss of habitat are reduced by 50% by the end of the project;


Habitat loss & degradation


  • The state of knowledge of 3 species of lemurs is improved, as well as scientific research papers on lemur conservation species are published internationally.

This project is implemented by The Peregrine Fund.
