Our mission statement: make you discover the birds of Madagascar!

The actual climate change and degradation of the natural habitats is having direct impacts on the birds’  behaviours. That is now directly observed and felt on the field and we are stakeholders in the conservation of the Birds of Madagascar. As a local team, we are permanently updating our knowledge and information to make your birding trip the most successful possible. It is high time to bird in Madagascar.
