Tsinjoarivo, Madagascar: people and wildlife
Hi, I am a diademed sifaka – a rare lemur species endemic to Madagascar.
I would like to welcome you to our virtual tours of Tsinjoarivo, a high-altitude rainforest site atop Madagascar’s eastern escarpment. Tsinjoarivo is currently unprotected, and human activity has fragmented and degraded much of our remaining forest, yet recent research indicates considerable biological richness. The humans I work with, members of the NGO SADABE, have been working at Tsinjoarivo since 2000, promoting research into this site’s unique biodiversity, undertaking conservation activities such as reforestation, and initiating sustainable development projects to help decrease the pressures on the forest. In sum, we hope to promote the sustainable coexistence of humans and wildlife. We plan to have tours of the fragmented forest environment every 2-3 weeks. These tours will encompass aspects of both the natural and human environment, highlighting areas of harmony, and areas of conflict. Please check back here regularly for the date and time of the next tour.
If you enjoy your tour and would like to contribute to the work that these humans are doing, please consider making a financial donation. More details about their organization and the work they do can be found here. Please tell your friends, and come back again soon!
We look forward to having you join us on a vEcotour!
