BRINGING CHANGE

OUR MISSION

WISE Tropics is cultivating partnerships to ensure that future generations will inherit tropical wildlife and the wonder it brings. Building on thirty years of hands-on experience in Madagascar, WISE Tropics supports programs that save lemurs, safeguard nature, plant new rainforests, educate children and adults on the effects of global change. We are investing in communities to make a better future for lemurs and people. Madagascar is a biodiversity wonderland, a place where 90% of the species are found nowhere else on Earth. A place of dreams, wonder, and challenge. By saving Madagascar, we are helping to save our planet.

Life is complicated, but our goals are simple: enhance livelihoods, ensure biodiversity and empower the next generation to safeguard our earth.

URGENT NEED: Combatting the Drought in Southern Madagascar

kids-wise-tropics-opti

Our WISE Tropics field site in the dry forest of Madagascar is suffering from extreme drought and needs your help. For over a year the rains have not come to southern Madagascar. We are working with ten villages surrounding the Zombitse-Vohibasia National Park and these villages need deep wells to find drinking water and to water crops. The hunger crisis created by the drought and compounded by the pandemic creates a crisis where village residents are forced to lean even more heavily on hunting and gathering food in the forests. WISE Tropics researcher, Amanda Rowe, is going this month to help the situation in the villages and document the effects of drought on the lemurs. Please donate funds to help build wells and provide economic opportunities to these villages in this time of crisis. Your donations will go into immediate action.
