The oil spill which is gradually spreading off the south-eastern coast of Mauritius.

14 August 2020

he volunteers are working hard to limit the ecological damage caused by the oil spill which is gradually spreading off the south-eastern coast of Mauritius. The ship Wakashio had run aground when it struck a reef a few days earlier at Pointe d’Esny, an important conservation site.

Such a situation harms biodiversity and marine ecosystems, but also key sectors such as tourism and fishing on which the economies of many countries in the region, including Madagascar, depend. The time may have come to tighten regulations for oil transport in the Indian Ocean.

Let’s celebrate our mangroves this July 26!

25 July 2020

On July 26, International Mangrove Day, the preservation of nature is a matter all the more serious because we are going through a health crisis whose origin comes from the destruction of nature and direct or indirect contact with wild animals. . Despite this pandemic, this day is celebrated to encourage the sustainable efforts we are making for our mangroves. Today, some 236,400 hectares cover the coastlines of Madagascar, which represents 2% of the mangroves in the world. Our mangroves are home to many species of flora and fauna unique to Madagascar. They produce between 2.5 and 3.9 tonnes of crabs per square kilometer per year, provide a living for many compatriots and make our landscapes unique. For WWF’s Dannick Randriamanantena, “it is ecosystems such as mangroves and coral reefs that make Madagascar’s west coast very productive. For our economy and the well-being of the Malagasy population, we have an interest in preserving these sources of life, ”he adds.

Since 2007, WWF has partnered with local communities, civil society organizations and authorities to conserve 50,000 hectares of mangroves in Menabe, Melaky and Diana regions through community management initiatives. Together, they planted over 19 million mangrove mangrove trees between 2009 and 2020. Beyond monitoring, these local communities are involved in the sustainable management and conservation of mangroves in many regions of Madagascar. They manage it so that mangroves and the resources that depend on them create sustainable value. This is important because mangrove forests are a natural solution to climate change and its effects. They store more carbon than terrestrial forests, filter water and protect coasts from erosion and cyclonic damage.

A study analyzing the legal and policy frameworks for mangroves in seven countries including Madagascar was developed under the “Save our mangroves now!” Initiative. “, In partnership with Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and WWF. This initiative aims to strengthen governance over the mangrove ecosystem to reduce and stop its destruction.

This year, the international day for the conservation of the mangrove ecosystem is marked by sensitization on radio channels and on social networks throughout Madagascar. These initiatives are led by local, regional or national associations with the regional directorates of the Ministry of the Environment and Sustainable Development and the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries. Initiatives supported by actors of mangrove conservation in Madagascar including WWF.

Let’s celebrate International Biodiversity Day

22 May 2020

Ecosystem conservation is one of the funding themes of Fondation Tany Meva. With its partners including CEPF, emblematic and endangered species such as dugongs and baobabs are better protected. In Madagascar, communities depend heavily on natural resources to survive. to reduce pressures on biodiversity, Fondation Tany Meva supports integrated projects by trying to find a balance between conservation strategies and improvement of community living conditions. These projects aim to sustain alternative sources of income (professionalization of promising sectors, tourism, crafts, etc.) and the construction of development infrastructures (hydro-agricultural dam, renewable energies, schools, etc.)

Let’s renew our commitment to the environment!

4 June 2020

Antananarivo, 4 June 2020 – World Environment Day is celebrated every 5 June. This year in Madagascar, the theme of biodiversity will be at the heart of the discussions, under the slogan “time for nature”.During “Nature Month”, we will present Nature Heroes to show that there are great men and women all over the island who are fighting to save the Planet. A special Facebook profile picture frame for the “Nature Month” is also available starting June 5th.

Throughout the month of June, Internet users are also invited to share amateur videos on social networks to show that everyone can commit to protecting the environment with the means at their disposal, with the hashtag #HoAnVoahary and #Connect2Earth. The videos will be collected by the team of the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development through social networks. A compilation will be edited and broadcast on the social networks as well as on the national television channel.

According to Mrs Baomivotse Vahinala Raharinirina, Minister of the Environment and Sustainable Development: “This is the year when, more than ever, the world can signal a strong will for a global framework that will “bend the curve” on the loss of biodiversity for the benefit of humans and all life on Earth. We thus call for solidarity and cooperation at all levels. Let us join forces, for this is the only guarantee of a common future, to live in harmony with nature. “

Globally, nature provides services worth approximately $125 billion annually, while helping to ensure the provision of fresh air, clean water, food, energy, medicines and other products and materials. (Living Planet Report 2018). Madagascar’s biodiversity is at high risk: pressures from human activities such as deforestation, pollution, overfishing, climate changes, poaching, etc. are causing biodiversity to disappear at an alarming rate. In Madagascar, because of the confinement measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, pressure on protected areas is increasing and consequently the rate of environmental crime is rising: bush fires, poaching, and corruption for illegal exploitation of natural resources.

Madagascar, like so many other countries in the world, will be able to mobilize online for Nature despite the health crisis linked to COVID-19. World Environment Day is celebrated under the leadership of the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development with all Malagasy nature lovers, including Conservation International (CI), the Madagascar Protected Areas Foundation (FAPBM), the Tany Meva Foundation, Madagascar National Parks (MNP), Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and World Wide Fund (WWF).

Together, let’s raise our voices and show that Nature matters, let’s stand together and turn the tide of nature’s loss!

Happy World Environment Day!

29 June 2020
