Where we are?
Why we need Your Help
Between 2005 until 2010, FBM was able to transform the status of “Classified Forest of Marosely” into Category V New Protected Area or Harmonious Protected Landscape.
Since 2015, the new protected area “Corridor Forestier Bongolava” has been clearly demarcated. Sensitization of community members was carried out at all levels ranging from the village to the district capital.
