We support local communities to conserve and use natural resources through a strong emphasis on traditional forms of management
All the latest news from Madagasikara Voakajy, the Malagasy biodiversity organisation dedicated to the conservation of endemic vertebrates and their habitats in Madagascar.
The Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species is an international treaty that aims to ensure that commercial collection, hunting and fishing of species for global trade does not endanger the survival of wild populations.
Madagasikara Voakajy is involved in a project funded by the Darwin Initiative to improve the conservation of threatened chameleons and the develop sustainable use of other common and abundant chameleons.
Wild animals are an important food source for people across the world but there is growing evidence in tropical forests that the offtake is unsustainable and populations of many species are under threat. There are numerous accounts of bushmeat hunting from Asia, South America and mainland Africa but relatively few from Madagascar.
