The Challenge

Bobaomby, the area located between Ambodimadiro going north to Cap d’Ambre, is rich in biodiversity, yet is undergoing a massive forest loss due to land clearing, forest fires, extension of the farmland, and an increase in charcoal production. In 15 years, the loss of forest cover continues to vary, averaging over 700 acres per year. These forests are the habitat of many endangered species which we believe are in major decline. Understanding scientific data such as the ecology of our focal species will allow us to develop appropriate conservation plans.

Urgent Solutions

In a strenuous effort to preserve the Bobaomby forest, Madagasikara Voakajy is intensifying its protection efforts by already strengthening patrolling efforts with the fund obtained in June 2023. We plan to extend these efforts to strengthen forest protection through local patrols. Investing in scientific research will provide us with data that will help us establish the right management strategy to conserve target species

Why your donation matters

The Bobaomby zone is an area with several charcoal permits, but we have identified several charcoal production areas where it is not permitted. Furthermore, Bobaomby has several sacred places with intact forests with high potential for biodiversity wealth. Given that we have obtained authorization from the local leaders to access these places, we would like to continue our conservation actions in these places, secure the necessary funds for biological surveys, and establish sustainable resource management plans.
