Conservation success ultimately depends on the support and participation of local communities.

To protect the most biologically diverse areas remaining in Madagascar, poverty and the increasing extraction and depletion of forests must be addressed.

Wildlife Madagascar seeks to implement programs that address food security, training and education for local people, resource use, enterprise development, and conflict management.

Program success relies on collaboration and partnership with local communities, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and tourism companies.

Wildlife Madagascar endeavors to integrate conservation and development planning and action at all levels, by facilitating a series of ongoing multi-stakeholder conservation and development forums.

We aim to establish programs that lead to lasting change, help alleviate poverty, and support environmental conservation for Madagascar’s vulnerable people, wildlife, and habitats.
