A Successful Start to Your Madagascar Adventure

Volunteer work almost always means to travel to a new, unknown place, usually alone. In order to ease the culture shock and get moving into your project, a joint introductory week with all other volunteers will take place at the beginning of all programs in Madagascar. In addition to useful information about travel safety and acceptable behavior, you will learn about the country, people, culture and traditions of the local community in Mahajanga. The introductory program also includes a language course in the Malagasy language. Basic language skills are definitely an advantage, as the majority of the native population speak only a little English.

Reports from Madagascar

    Program Information

    Wildlife Conservation in Nosy Be

    Madagascar offers one of the greatest biological diversities on Earth. Of the approximately 200,000 different animal species on Madagascar, about 150,000 are endemic. The most famous examples of this are the lemurs. These live exclusively in Madagascar. But the lemurs are considered one of the most endangered species of mammals in the world. Approximately 90% of the various species of lemurs are on the red list of endangered species. Therefore, in Madagascar there are now many conservation centers to protect this endemic species. As a volunteer in a lemur rehabilitation center, you can help protect these endangered animals.

    Community Work Programme

    Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in the world. Lack of access to education means little chance for a successful future for the rural population in particular. Although some state initiatives are in place, they do not make a large enough of an impact nor are they easily sustainable. This community care program in Madagascar was created to provide free education for children and women in and around Nosy Be. Volunteers are particularly helpful in teaching English. Fun and games should always be part of the teaching/learning activities, to keep the participants lively and engaged.

    Mangrove Forest Conservation

    Not only are animal species threatened. Mangrove forests growing in the tropical coastal region are also disappearing. Mangrove forests are threatened primarily by the development of urban areas and overfishing. Many mangroves have also been converted into rice plantations or areas for salt production. This problem is being addressed through special programs designed to preserve and cultivate new mangrove forests in Madagascar. Your volunteer work will not only comprise of hands on work with planting, but also developing and managing events to create greater environmental awareness among the inhabitants of the island.

    Project Location – Nosy Be

    Nosy is an island off the northwest coast of Madagascar. Nosy Be is Madagascar's largest and busiest tourist destination. It has an area of 320.02 square kilometers and its population was estimated at 73,010. Nosy Be means "big island" in the Malagasy language. The island was called Assada during the early colonial era of the 17th century.

    Here you’ll find volcanic lakes, lemurs, rum distilleries, Ylang Ylang plantations and breathtaking coral reefs that are practically begging to be explored. In May, come to experience the four-day Donia Music Festival. Perfectly located on the Indian Ocean between Africa and Asia, Nosy-Be evokes feelings of discovery and adventure, the rich and endemic biodiversity will have begging for more. There are many spots that are perfect for ones who seek a golden opportunity to swim among turtles, stingrays or manta rays.
