What We Do
Conservation Fusion connects communities across the world through innovative education programs that promote conservation actions. The organization currently focuses its efforts in Madagascar where it partners with research-oriented organizations – including the Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership – to undertake education outreach programs. Conservation Fusion has ongoing programs in northern (Antsiranana region), eastern (Analmazaotra and Kianjavato), and southern Madagascar (Lavavolo).
How We Protect Lemurs And Other Wildlife
We protect lemurs by raising awareness of lemur species and their conservation at four sites in southern Madagascar.
What Lemur Species We Protect
Conservation Fusion help to protect the following species of lemur:
- Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis)
- Black-and-white ruffed lemur (Varecia variegata)
- Diademed sifaka (Propithecus diadema)
- Greater bamboo lemur (Prolemur simus)
- Ring-tailed lemur (Lemur catta)
- Northern sportive lemur (Lepilemur septentrionalis)
- Verreaux’s sifaka (Propithecus verreauxi)
How We Support Local Communities
Our greatest successes have come from the relationships and collaborations that we have forged with researchers, local communities, and organizations who aim to complement Conservation Fusion’s education programs and vision.
Conservation Fusion continues education-based programming; our work in southern Madagascar is just one of the many initiatives being undertaken to raise awareness in-country. Here we focus on raising awareness of radiated tortoises, ring-tailed lemurs, and sifaka in the dry spiny forests of Lavavolo in southern Madagascar. Outreach programs – which have been implemented for over three years – consist of hands-on activities with the local villages and schools and include: community gardens, agriculture training, workshops on using fuel-efficient Rocket Stove, and a junior researcher day.
