Madagascar volunteer projects


Volunteer in Madagascar

If you choose to volunteer or intern with us in Madagascar, you’ll be based in the northwest of the country, on the island of Nosy Be. This tropical island destination is home to long stretches of white-sanded beaches and several endemic species found nowhere else in the world.

Madagascar volunteer programs

In Madagascar, we contribute towards two United Nations Sustainable Development Goals  Goal 4, Quality Education, and Goal 15, Life On Land. 

Wildlife volunteering in Madagascar

Our base in Madagascar is located right next to Lokobe National Park, an old-growth rainforest featuring three species of endangered and critically endangered lemurs. As A volunteer or intern based here you’ll contribute towards lemur and other wildlife conservation efforts.
