Director: Charles Welch and Andrea Katz
Research Objectives: The project has multiple yet integrated goals which give a broad environmental scope to anticipated results. The first goal is to improve the conservation status of the Betampona Natural Reserve and to contribute to in-country training in natural resource protection and management. Grassroots community activities are being developed. Another key goal of the project is the ongoing determination of the viability of using wild releases of captive-born lemurs as a conservation strategy.
