Conservation of baobab trees in Madagascar #MyMadagascar #MahajangaMaVille

Conservation of baobabtrees in Madagascar

Congress for the Conservation of Baobabs, a first in Madagascar !

Conservation of baobabtrees in Madagascar. The 15 to the 17 Last December, a scientific congress on the conservation of baobabs was held in Morondava.

The congress was initiated by the GSPBM (Groupe Specialists and Passionnés de Baobabs Madagascar). The GSPBM brings together young phDs in plant biology and ecology from the University of Antananarivo. His theme was "Conservation of baobabs for a lever for sustainable economic development". About 150 people from Madagascar and other countries took part.

Students, Researchers, conservationists, economic and tourism operators involved in the marketing of baobab products, focused on the development of a baobab conservation strategy document and the collection of information for the development of the Non-Prejudicial Notice of Commerce document (ACNP) for the species Adansonia grandidieri (Renala).

The CPA is a decision of the scientific authority on the international trade in endangered wild fauna and flora species. Through these documents, management tools and strategies that reconcile the conservation and economic development of this species have been developed.

Seven out of eight species in the world are found only in Madagascar, six of which are endemic to the Big Island. The population of these species is currently experiencing a sharp reduction in Madagascar due to massive deforestation over the past decade. Thus, it is imperative to protect this species, which makes it a national emblem of the country, hence the need for activities such as this congress.

On the other hand, the results of the baobab research were presented by participants who also maintained a nursery 1.000.000 native and exotic seedlings including the baobab tree at Ambalirao Morondava. On the sidelines of the congress, "Exchanges with the various participants allow us to forge new relationships for possible future collaborations for conservation and development", says Judicael Rakotondrazafy of the WWF.

Unique Madagascar!

Unique, Madagascar is rich in biodiversity. Indeed, 5% plant and animal species from all over the world are found in Madagascar with an endemicity rate close to the 80%. Naturalists have listed more than 19 000 plant species and more than 100 species of lemurs. Madagascar is a true sanctuary of nature. First French-speaking African country to join IUCN, Madagascar has interested WWF since 1963. Indeed, Jean-Jacques Petter, French zoologist considered a leading figure in French primatology, receiving the WWF gold medal for its conservation work in Madagascar, asked WWF to conserve nature in Madagascar in view of its degradation.
