LCF in Madagascar
The Lemur Conservation Foundation partners with scientists and conservationists on the ground in Madagascar. A large island nation (bigger than California or France) off the southeast coast of Africa, it is one of the world’s hottest biodiversity hotspots, and the only place where lemurs are found naturally. LCF is a managing member of the Madagascar Fauna and Flora Goup (MFG), an international consortium of zoos working together to conserve Madagascar’s spectacular wildlife and their habitats through field research, conservation breeding, technical advice and training to Malagasy institutions and biologists.
Supported Reserves on the Island
For ten years LCF supported the Protected Area of Tampolo. With a Nature’s Path Organic Foods award, LCF contributed to building a museum and interpretative center, a guesthouse for visiting scientific researchers, and a classroom/community center.
LCF is now supporting Anjanaharibe-Sud Special Reserve (ASSR). Nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this large 280 sq km (108 square miles) mountainous rainforest reserve supports at least 11 species of lemurs, including critically endangered black indri and silky sifakas, which are one of the rarest mammals in the world.
