Encounters of the Rarest Kind

Madagascar Lemur and Wildlife Conservation Expedition

Explore one of the world's oldest rainforests while working to protect some of its rarests animals.

Durations:  1 - 12 weeks

Program information

Help to protect endangered and critically endangered lemur species in the only remaining primaeval rainforest on the tropical island of Nosy Be. Trek through the forest (day and night) undertaking lemur population censuses, survey the forest for the tiniest of frogs and chameleons, and help to restore their natural habitat by getting involved in regrowing indigenous tree species.

Undertake a full biodiversity survey to attempt to record as many species as possible, from chameleons to frogs and investigate the impact of the last 30 years on the species that live in the reserve. These surveys will be undertaken frequently and year-round to ensure we record the presence of seasonal or rare species that would be harder to record if the surveys are only undertaken during 1 temporal period.
