Tree seedlings to replenish Madagascar forest
Villagers in Antanandava, Madagascar grew over 6,000 tree seedlings as of last month in preparation for a major replanting effort to replenish clear-cut areas of Antanandava’s forest reserve.
In exchange, we’ve provided funds to build a library and reading room for Antanandava students. Construction is expected to continue for a few more months.
This is actually the second Seacology project in Antanandava. In 2010, the village agreed to create their 988-acre forest reserve in exchange for funds to build two new schoolhouses.
