Volunteer in Madagascar

For 20 years SEED has worked with the local communities in the littoral forests of Sainte Luce (south-east Madagascar), studying and protecting the incredible biodiversity it has to offer.

Over this time, we have welcomed over 1,000 volunteers from across the world to come join us and discover the unique diversity that these threatened forest fragments and surrounding habitats support.

While working alongside our expert research team, volunteers will directly contribute to projects across our whole conservation research programme. From lemur and herpetofauna surveys, to palms microhabitats and seed collecting, and so much more! Volunteers will gain hands-on research and data collection skills, while being immersed in the flora and fauna south-east Madagascar has to offer.

No previous experience or skills in conservation is required to volunteer, we just ask that you have a passion for the environment, an open-mind, and a sense of adventure!
