Pure Trade partners with Man & Nature, a non-profit organization that develops and promotes innovative conservation programs, aiming to maintain sustainable biodiversity models around the world.
The site and its biodiversity
Located in the south of the Antananarivo city, the capital of Madagascar, the Ranomafana National parc is incredibly rich in biodiversity, hosting different specimens. Just on the border of the park, living some of poorest human populations of the world, who do not yet have any other alternative for agriculture than slash and burn. Consequently, the villages of Vohitrarivo, Vohimarina and Sahofika have their environment extremely degraded and jeopardized. Fortunately, one of the first and last plant growing back after the land has been burnt is bamboo, the main food of the great bamboo lemur.
Help local communities break free of extreme poverty and advance to implement plans that would allow the habitat conservation required for the Bamboo lemurs.
