Our environmental projects work to protect threatened areas and species in the Anosy region of southeast Madagascar - before they are lost to us forever. Our team of passionate conservationists and short-term conservation volunteers conduct vital research to help protect a variety of endangered species. We also focus on involving local communities as these are the people who know the most about the local environment and conservation priorities. SEED Madagascar brings people together to discuss these important issues and then provides much-needed support to allow these areas and resources to flourish for generations to come.
More than 600 new plants and animals were discovered in Madagascar between 1999-2010. Many of these were already in danger of extinctionWWF, 2011
SEED Madagascar has been conducting conservation research and community-based conservation actions in the littoral forest fragments of the Anosy region for 20 years. Each of our projects is designed to fit into our long term conservation strategy, bringing greater stability and long term focus.
