Overview: Mangrove forest conservation in Nosy Be, Madagascar

This project was designed to preserve the wilderness of Northwest Madagascar. During your work in a cultural center, you will learn a lot about the richness, the uses and the threats of the mangrove forests in Northwest Madagascar. In addition to creating worksheets for visiting children, you will also work on a seedbed. In this seedbed, young mangroves trees are planted, which are used as green classroom for the children.
