The SEED Conservation Research Programme (SCRP) is based in the beautiful coastal region of Sainte Luce, surrounded by rare and threatened fragments of littoral (coastal) forest. The programme works to integrate scientific research with community conservation, where you will combine hands-on conservation fieldwork on endangered species including lemurs, reptiles and amphibians, with community initiatives and environmental education. Sainte Luce is one of only three significant area of this forest type remaining in Madagascar, having been reduced by over 90%.
The SEED Madagascar Conservation Research Programme is offered as an internship for those wishing to gain experience and/or credit for a college or university course. The major difference between whether you take the programme as an intern or a volunteer relates to the amount of mentorship and self-evaluation available to you during your time on the programme.
