ABOUT THE PROJECT


Durrell Wildlife has played a leading role in the recent declaration of a highly threatened wetland habitat in Madagascar as a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance. Alaotra, in the country’s central-eastern highlands, is home to a number of highly endangered species, and is the ONLY home of the Critically Endangered Alaotran gentle lemur. Six years of intensive in-country conservation work by the Trust have resulted in the declaration, formalised on 2 February, which will ensure an ongoing commitment by the Malagasy government to maintaining the area’s fragile biodiversity and ecosystem functions.
Anna Gray produced "Tsy Ho Leo Monina, Tsy Hiova Seranana" for the Brock Initiative in association with Durrell Wildlife. It was the first Brock Initiative project and played a high profile role in the project's success.
