Volunteer – Madagascar (The Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership’s (MBP) volunteer research program is an extraordinary opportunity for you to become a part of essential conservation efforts in Madagascar)
Call for 2022 Volunteers!
The Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership's (MBP) volunteer research program is an extraordinary opportunity for you to become a part of essential conservation efforts in Madagascar, become immersed in our ongoing research initiatives, and get first-hand experience in community-based reforestation efforts. Come stay at our field station, get your hands dirty, and learn what it takes to keep a conservation project alive.
During your tenure, you will participate in two important conservation efforts: habitat restoration and lemur monitoring. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to engage in projects that benefit the community.
In 2022, we will host 3 cohorts:
Cohort #1 Arrive May 31-June 2 / Depart August 9-11
Cohort #2 Arrive July 26-28 / Depart October 11-13
Cohort #3 Arrive September 27-29 / Depart December 13-15
Cost: $1,500 ($300 non-refundable) - Funds cover your food and lodging (and more) at the field station and support our research and conservation efforts.
Put "Volunteer Inquiry" in the subject line.
Many of our volunteers already have or are working towards a BA or BS in the biological or environmental sciences, but this is not a requirement. The priority traits for volunteers are a willingness to work in isolated conditions, the ability to solve problems independently, and previous work or travel experience in tropical countries is an advantage. A dedication to a positive and respectful working environment is vital.
