Project objectives

This grant will enable the project to facilitate long-­term conservation participation from radio listeners and project participants throughout the Ranomafana region and beyond.

By informing entire local communities including over 10,000 listeners about the importance of lemurs and the dangers facing them, this project aims to diminish threats to lemurs and their habitats in the region as well as to foster direct community involvement in conservation.

The ultimate goal is for these lemur shows to be broadcast on National Radio.

This project is implemented by Institute for the Conservation of Tropical Environment.
