Sainte Luce Island Reserve is now open to welcome you to enjoy the spectacular beauty of south east Madagascar. On an island-like peninsular, cut off from the mainland by river mouths to the north and south, the reserve has been established to contribute to the conservation of this extraordinary habitat, being some of the very last absolute coastal forest left in the south east of Madagascar and one of the most critically endangered micro-habitats in the country. The reserve is bounded to the east by the Indian Ocean (and of course her white sand beaches), to the west by winding fresh water rivers, and to the north & south by more protected forests. There is no village, there are no neighbours, and because our reserve boasts fresh water habitat, marine habitat, littoral forest, mangrove, wetland and open grasslands, you will find lemurs, birds, reptiles, mammals, sea turtles, crocodiles.... it's all here. Sainte Luce Island Reserve is now open to campers, researchers and volunteers. The Reserve is part of 450 hectares of protected forest and wetlands and boasts kilometres of white-sand beaches. The promotion of this forest as a research site and camp-ground ensures the integrity of the protected area and ensures the protection of the coastline as one tract of forest. The reserve is managed by the Sainte Luce Conservation Partnership. We boast many, many decades of combined experience in this part of Madagascar, award-winning individuals now working as a team to provide a sustainable conservation solution for this extraordinary habitat.
