As from June 8th 2020, 100% of micro-donations received via the ARRONDI en caisse operation will go to the NGOs project to “Preserve the rainforests on Nosy Boraha island” supported by the Maisons du Monde Foundation.
Boasting 2,954 hectares of remarkable forests and 450 hectares of mangroves, Nosy Boraha has been listed as a top-priority site for protection by the state of Madagascar. Tourism and intensive human activity especially has undermined forests, the coastline and marine ecosystems.
To restore these ecosystems, GRET set up a project with local residents in 2016, to help with reforestation and to protect forests and mangroves, supported by the Maisons du Monde Foundation. A core feature underpinning this project is the creation of viable jobs that do not exploit the environment. And going yet further, steps have also been taken to create a Natural, Protected Area to safeguard the 260 remarkable species listed on the island!
