The Protected Areas of Lokobe, Ankarana, and Montagne d’Ambre in Northern Madagascar

Bilingual edition

The latest research into the biodiversity of three protected areas of northern Madagascar.

This bilingual French-English pocket guide covers three protected areas in northern Madagascar that form a sort of natural tourist circuit for those traveling from Nosy Be to Antsiranana (Diego Suarez) or in the opposite direction. These sites encapsulate an important portion of the terrestrial biotic diversity of this ecologically diverse area of the island and include the lowland moist evergreen forests of Lokobe on the adjacent island of Nosy Be; the dry deciduous, humid semi-deciduous, and tsingy forests of Ankarana, north of Ambilobe; and the montane moist evergreen forests of Montagne d’Ambre, in close proximity to Antsiranana. As the result of varying geological formations and history, superimposed on differing climatic regimes, the flora and fauna of these three protected areas are dramatically different from one another, while their proximity enables visitors to the region to view and experience these contrasting biodiversity treasures. The manner and range of different details presented for each site allow ecotourists, whether nationals or people coming from overseas, to understand some of the unique aspects of each site and better enjoy their visits to them.
