RESTAURATION

LIENS UTILES

Restauration des surfaces de la forêt qui ont été victimes des feux auparavant permet de mieux repousser les feux sauvages dans l’avenir
The Ankafobe Forest consists of just 30 hectares of degraded humid forest surrounded by tens of thousands of hectares of biologically impoverished and almost useless grassland. This site has a number of attributes that make it is the ideal location for a model restoration project. Recently, we have got a find (Marisla Foundation ) to conduct a project to increase awareness within Madagascar that natural capital can be restored and that natural capital restoration has enormous potential to improve the quality of life and create jobs and livelihoods for the Malagasy people. We propose supporting a high-profile, model, community-based project with the objective of restoring natural capital to ca. 150 hectares of one of the most degraded landscapes in Madagascar
