Biodiversité

Véritable « hotspot » de la biodiversité, Madagascar compte de nombreux sites d’importance mondiale. La fondation contribue à protéger ces aires à travers le financement de gestionnaires de sites, tel Madagascar National Parks, Asity Madagascar, the Peregrine Fund, Wildlife Conservation Society ou encore Missouri Botanical Garden.

80% des plantes, 95% des reptiles et 98% des amphibiens sont endémique à Madagascar. Il est aujourd’hui vital de protéger ce joyau de la nature en proposant une protection de la biodiversité et des aires protégées basée sur le développement humain, l’éducation et la promotion d’un tourisme plus responsable.

Biodiversity

Madagascar is one of the world’s most fascinating biodiversity “hot spots.” The value of the island’s protected areas to the world is colossal as they harbour much of this biodiversity and, along with the island’s vast coral reefs, act as important carbon sinks.

80% of flowering plants, 95% of reptiles, 98% of frogs are endemic in Madagascar. However, 80 – 90% of its forest cover damaged or completely degraded. The ecologically unique characteristics of the island, combined with the urgent environmental threats, position Madagascar to be, according to some, one of “the greatest conservation priority in the world.”

Through the financial support of protected areas managers - such as Madagascar National Parks, Missouri Botanical Garden, The Peregrine Fund, Asity Madagascar or Wildlife Conservation Society - the Foundation provides sustainable local answers to environmental issues.

The Foundation promotes human development, education programs and an alternative tourism, all sustainably oriented on biodiversity conservation.
