Volunteer Mangrove Ecosystem Monitoring Program in the mangroves of SW Madagascar

Honko Mangrove Conservation & Education, an NGO working with communities in SW Madagascar to promote community-based mangrove management since 2008, is looking for volunteers to join us for our new Mangrove Ecosystem Monitoring Volunteer Program in Ambondrolava, SW. Volunteers will be trained in and conduct basic field ecology techniques throughout healthy, degraded, and reforested areas of Ambondrolava's mangroves, collecting information on forest structure, dead organic material, and abiotic factors. This data informs Honko and the local mangrove management association on the changes occurring in the forest, whether from management activities, increased resource pressure from local communities, or natural succession. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking for field experience, an adventure, or looking to enter the field of conservation and sustainable development.

Please contact us at volunteer@honko.org for the program brochure for more information on the program, volunteer activities and costs, our organization, the mangroves of Ambondrolava. For more information and to apply for the program, please contact us at volunteer@honko.org.

You can also learn more about us through our website www.honko.org, our Facebook page, and our blog where we post regular photos and updates on all of Honko's community and conservation initiatives.

We look forward to hearing from you!
