About this Project
Located in the Mahajanga region of Madagascar, the Ankarafantsika 3 planting site comprises 825 hectares of dry deciduous forest within Ankarafantsika National Park. The landscape, a mosaic of dry forests and savannahs, provides essential habitat for threatened and endangered wildlife.
What is the issue?
The primary causes of forest degradation at Ankarafantsika 3 are human driven extraction for charcoal production and land clearing for agriculture. Much of this site has been severely degraded. However, healthy, old-growth forest remains nearby, making this a critical area for restoration and protection. The primary villages, Ambikakely and Ampombilava, are home to over 460 people, most of whom are farmers or produce charcoal.
