The Tarzan chameleon is an endemic chameleon found only in eastern Madagascar. This chameleon is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red list of endangered species due to restricted geographic range and continuing decline of its remaining habitat.


The main threat to this chameleon is habitat loss due to slash-and-burn agriculture and logging. To ensure the conservation of this chameleon and its habitat, this year 2022, a five-year action plan was developed and we start to implement it with all stakeholders.
