Antrema Miray

Madagascar

Our Vision and Mission

Antrema Miray (AMI) is a non-profit association that aims to preserve natural resources and cultural wealth, while also ensuring the sustainable development of the Biocultural Site of Antrema.

AMI was created in 2000 at the initiative of Prince Tsimanendry, Guardian of the Traditions. Under this initiative, lemurs are considered crowned prophets and are the incarnation of their ancestors. Therefore, lemurs are taboo (fady) and not to be touched.

In 2016, AMI was formalized to include the local communities from 12 different associations. Together, AMI focuses on biodiversity conservation, the development of various economic sectors, and cultural, social, and community development initiatives.
