PMGY Saint-Luce is a great experience. Not only do you get to help out in conserving local habitat and collecting data, but you can also integrate with and learn from the locals who work there. It’s a long ride there and a bit isolated but definitely a once in a lifetime experience that’s completely worth it.
To truly get a sense of what has happened to most of Madagascar visit Sainte Luce Reserve. As one of the few remnants of primary forest, Brett Massoud has acquired a living history. Prior to deforestation much of the country looked like this paradise. The country has been ravaged by greedy illegal exporters of hardwood, minerals and other precious resources. Brett's volunteers spend time replanting, cultivating, interacting with lemurs and other wildlife with the intention of retaining a portion of Madagascar's former glory. Do yourself and the planet a favour - volunteer at St. Luce for a week or two - or longer. You'll feel better and so will Mother Earth.
