A list of all my Madagascar posts
What a joy, what a pleasure, what an unutterable privilege to witness these magnificent primates in their natural habitat, with representatives of humanity present not as usurpers, desecrators, and conquerors but as protectors, chroniclers, and friends!
From late July through mid-October 2019, I worked as a volunteer research assistant for the Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership (MBP), based out of the Kianjavato Ahmanson Field Station (KAFS). KAFS is located near the village of Kianjavato, in the eastern rainforests of Madagascar. During this time, I worked to assist MBP’s studies of the critically endangered greater bamboo lemur (Prolemur simus), as well as teaching English classes and later assisting the community reforestation program.
