Comic Strips as Environmental Educative Tools for the Alaotra Region


Madagascar Conservation & Development, vol 1, no 1: pp. 11-14.
Madagascar Wildlife Conservation (2006).
Stapled Printout


The Alaotra Gentle Lemur (Hapalemur griseus alaotrensis) is one of the most endangered lemurs of Madagascar. The wild population struggles for survival in the rapidly disappearing papyrus marshes fringing Lake Alaotra, northeastern Madagascar. The current estimated population size of the Alaotra lemurs is about 3,000 individuals. The largest subpopulations left are found in the marshes around the four villages of Andreba, Ambodivoara, Andilana Sud and Anororo. These sites constitute the main focus of Madagascar Wildlife Conservation's (MWC) environmental education project. In a test phase lasting from November 2006 - February 2007, eight primary school classes will implement a series of educative comic strips dealing with the complexity of the Alaotra lake and marshy ecosystem. The aim of this teaching method is to raise the awareness of the schoolchildren about the importance and significance of their natural environment.
