Manjarisoa (Phase 1)
Why we love this project
The Manjarisoa project is a 3-phase project, starting with phase 1 for the next two years. Over this phase, ForestCalling Action is employing 145 local people to rehabilitate 152 hectares of the Manjarisoa tropical inland forest by planting over 125,000 endemic trees. Not only will this project save the forest from an industrial fishing project but it will also participate in protecting and reintroducing 6 different species of lemurs.
About the project developer
Since 2020, ForestCalling Action has been working towards curbing deforestation and saving tropical forests of Madagascar. Their model focuses on acquiring threatened rainforests with the goal to create natural reserves, and to protect their biodiversity and ecosystems. In 2021, they restored over 25 ha of the Rabesoa forest in Madagascar, protecting an estimated 200 lemurs which are endangered species on the island. On top of reforesting, their aim is to create local employment by hiring local scientists, managers and forest rangers, all committed to protecting threatened territories.
