Help do a good thing!

Your contribution helps protect all these plants and animals!

Finally, Peace Corps has posted my project on their website.  The goal of this project is to improve ecotourism at Analalava forest (with whom I am partnered) by creating and fixing trails and building the facilities necessary to house tourists, school groups, and researchers.  Given its proximity to a popular beach destination, there is great potential to turn this reserve into a self-sustaining tourist attraction that will bring lots of economic activity to the area.  This would help conserve the forest by providing alternative income generation sources to the local population (most of whom earn around a $1.00 a day) and reduce their reliance on aid from NGOs and foreign governments.  In just 2 days, we raised nearly $300. Only another $800 to go.  Please click here to contribute or go to peacecorps.gov/donate and cut/paste project # 13-684-016 into the search bar. Your donation is tax deductible.

Your help is greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
