All the latest news from Madagasikara Voakajy, the Malagasy biodiversity organisation dedicated to the conservation of endemic vertebrates and their habitats in Madagascar.

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.

Many wild animal species in Madagascar are hunted to provide people with food. We are partners on a Darwin Initiative project that aims to reduce illegal hunting and to support the sustainable and equitable use of  animals that can be legally hunted.
