15th November

Today we visited the lovely Anja community reserve where infant ring-tailed lemurs played at our feet, Grandidier’s iguanids toasted themselves on granite outcrops, and a Madagascarophis colubrinus snake devoured a hapless Oustalet’s chameleon. This reserve is community conservation at its best. I hope the model can be replicated elsewhere in Madagascar. The need is great.

New today at Anja
