SEED Madagascar has had a presence in the Sainte Luce area since 2001. Our first data collection started as part of "Lemur Venture" in 2007. Since then the approach to conservation in the area evolved to incorporate a more holistic approach as the Azafady Conservation Programme, with greater community involvement and a more varied range of biodiversity research, eventually resulting in what is now the SEED Madagascar Conservation Programme.
As a research group we aim to feed the results of our research back into the community so together we can build on the knowledge gained. We also like to share our knowledge internationally through publishing in scientific journals and informally by keeping our past volunteers and supporters up to date with what the SEED Madagascar Conservation Programme is working on through annual reports.
