The Fandriana-Vondrozo Forest Corridor is rich in biodiversity with approx. 65 plant species, 7 species of lemurs and more than 60 bird species, most of which are endemic to Madagascar.
However, local communities are very dependent on the forest and a lot of slash and burn (“tavy”) and hunting takes place in this area.
The aim of the WWF project is to assist and motivate the local communities to identify ways to manage their natural resources in a more sustainable manner.
One of the main activities is to create awareness on the importance of the forest and the transfer of forest management to the local communities.
