The Madagascar Chapter Society of Conservation Biology is a local chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB). SCB is an international professional organization dedicated to promoting the scientific study of the phenomena that affect the maintenance, loss, and restoration of biological diversity. The Society’s membership comprises a wide range of people interested in the conservation and study of biological diversity: resource managers, educators, government and private conservation workers, and students make up the more than 10,000 members world-wide.
As a Chapter, we share in the organization’s vision of « a world where people understand, value, and conserve the diversity of life on Earth. We envision SCB, a global community of conservation professionals, as a leading scientific voice for the study and conservation of Earth’s biological diversity. »
The Madagascar Chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology was created in January 2016 following initiatives from Malagasy conservation actors. We follow the SCB’s mission to ‘advance the science and practice of conserving the earth’s biological diversity. We engage in on-the-ground conservation activities and connect SCB members in Madagascar.
