Association Anja Miray (Association Anja Miray)

Anja Miray was established in 1999 in response to the degradation and clearing of local forests, the sedimentation of water resources, and the loss of wildlife such as ring-tailed lemurs, chameleons, and tropical birds. The association operates a 30-hectare community forest reserve in the Haute Matsiatra region of the country.

The community has established an ecotourism initiative which funds community works projects – schools, health clinics, and environmental education – and ongoing conservation activities. Ecotourism has also provided a revenue stream for alternative livelihood projects such as fish farming and tree nurseries. The association has provided a leading model of community-based forest management in the country.
