How does a conservation working holiday differ from a 'normal' holiday?
This is an opportunity to volunteer your time and skills to help out, you pay for your travel and something towards your keep; it's also a fun way to gain new skills, make new friends.

WITH SEED MADAGASCAR
Our conservation programme is based in the beautiful coastal region of Sainte Luce, surrounded by extremely rare & threatened fragments of littoral (coastal) forest. You will combine hands-on conservation fieldwork on endangered species incl lemurs, reptiles & amphibians, with community initiatives & environmental education. The southern littoral forest in Sainte Luce is one of only three significant areas of this forest type remaining in Madagascar, having been reduced by over 90%. As the forest has both high biodiversity & a heavily reliant local population, the SEED Madagascar Conservation Research Programme works to integrate scientific research with community conservation to build knowledge & capacity for sustainable conservation efforts. Currently research focuses on biodiversity, collecting data about species present, their distribution, density, behaviour & habitats. The data is then used to better manage forests, support the local community & protect the species concerned. Volunteers also run environmental education classes for local children.
