The WCS Madagascar Program works throughout Madagascar to ensure the long-term conservation of the country’s unique biological diversity with a focus on activities in our priority landscape/seascapes. We achieve this through terrestrial and marine protected area management, engagement with local communities to support them to become effective stewards of natural resources, environmental education, and a program of applied conservation science.
WCS’s interventions are focused in the MaMaBay Landscape/Seascape program in the northeast of Madagascar with interventions in and around Makira Natural Park – where WCS is the delegated manager of the Park, Masoala National Park, and Antongil Bay. We also work in the southwest and northwest of the country to support the management of a network of locally managed marine areas, environmental education and community engagement, as well as research and conservation of marine mammals.
