ABOUT Association FILANA
Who We Are
Association FILANA was founded in 2010 to support communities living around protected areas in south east Madagascar. Our main focus was then and remains today the conservation of littoral forest in the Anôsy Region of Madagascar, most specifically Sainte Luce.
Since those early days, our remit has been broadened and we now work on direct conservation, ecological & mangrove restoration & monitoring, and on more urban projects, closer to Fort Dauphin town, and on broader conservation goals.
Our principal activities at the moment (August 2022) are:
Managing conservation of the private protected area known as Sainte Luce Reserve
Developing plans for the distribution of fruit trees to farmers in exchange for conservation efforts
Supporting green-economy initiatives
Responding to local emergencies when called on
