Join an international team of interns and work in one of the world’s rarest and most unique habitats.
Description: Travel to the last remaining primaeval rainforest on the island of Nosy Be - home to the famous lemur, the most endangered mammal on earth! You’ll be working to conserve the sole remaining rainforest on Nosy Be island and its at-risk inhabitants in the protected area of Lokobe National Park. Through tracking, population census and biodiversity surveys, you’ll help gather data on these threatened species. Your work will also help establish the baseline biodiversity of the forest. Some of the most significant threats to wildlife in the area are deforestation and poaching. You’ll learn, from the locals, how they prevent both and get involved where you can. There may also be a chance to support indigenous plant nurseries and help work to establish new populations of traditional medicinal plants.
