Madagascar’s ecological issues run deep, touching the very heart of the island's rich natural heritage and the lives of its people. For too long, rampant deforestation has stripped away the lush forests that are not only home to unique and endangered wildlife like lemurs but also vital sources of livelihood for local communities.

Many families and local farmers rely on the land for sustenance and income, and Madagascar’s forests serve as a critical resource to help support many residents’ livelihoods.

It's a reality where the loss of forests isn't just an environmental issue, but a human one, impacting the well-being and prospects of countless individuals.

Solution

Our initiative addresses the urgent need to reverse the destruction of forest habitats in Madagascar, home to critically endangered lemurs and other unique wildlife species.

By planting 30,000 trees across the island, we're working to rebuild the lush landscape that sustains these iconic creatures. This project not only aims to restore habitat for lemurs but also promotes food security and sustainable forestry practices, ensuring a better way of life for the people of Madagascar.

Implementation plan

In Lavavolo, a community nestled in the heart of Madagascar's lush landscapes, our local planting partner — the Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership through Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo — utilizes an approach to tree planting that is deeply rooted in collaboration and community empowerment. We recognize the vital role that residents play in the success of this project, not only as stewards of the land but also as beneficiaries of its bounty.

By actively involving the people of Lavavolo in tree-planting initiatives, we're not just restoring a habitat for lemurs. We're providing a lifeline for these resilient communities.
