About Association Mitsinjo

Association Mitsinjo is a non-profit organization that works in Mitsinjo Park.  In 2003, Association Mitsinjo took over the management of Analamazaotra Forest Station, a nature reserve 2,896 acres in size.  Founded and run by the local community, Mitsinjo holds a deep understanding of how environmental issues are intrinsically tied to community health.  All of their projects are community-based and tackle a variety of challenges, including reforestation, environmental education, sustainable development, and wildlife conservation and monitoring.

Their Challenges

Association Mitsinjo faces many challenges, including forest degradation from worsening fires, slash-and-burn agriculture, logging, and the production of fuelwood and charcoal.

Their Approach

Mitsinjo not only focuses on managing the protected natural resources and conserving biodiversity but also on improving the livelihoods of its members and the people within their community. They have a six-pronged approach:

  1. Reforestation and rainforest restoration
  2. Environmental education
  3. Community-based environmental protection and sustainable agriculture
  4. Human health and family planning
  5. Amphibian conservation
  6. Lemur monitoring
