We believe in empowering civil society and communities to manage natural resources and we are actively supporting a number of community-based groups in our priority sites. At the moment, these are located in the Anosy, Menabe and Alaotra Mangoro Regions.

We support commnunities to establish formal associations, we then support these associations through the provision of different forms of training and essential equipment where necessary. Click  for more information on this subject at our orphan forest and Mangabe sites.


In many circumstances we also need to support the work of environment professionals and these have ranged from government personnel to national park guides. As an example, we provided training to the tourist guides and national park agents in Bemaraha National Park. This consisted of formal classroom training and field excercises led by national experts in the fields of birds, bats and reptiles. This was supported by advanced English and French language training as well as detailed briefings on etiquette.
