Protected areas in Madagascar

The status of the officially recognised protected areas in Madagascar has been in a state of change since the declaration in 2006 by then President Ravelomanana to increase the total area of Madagascar set aside for biodiversity conservation. Since that date additional protected areas have been designated, others have been increased in surface area and the status and management of numerous areas have been changed or are in the process of change. Although currently (in 2013) the planned changes are in the process of implementation and situation continues to evolve and some additional sites may still be established, the eventual outcome of this important phase in the history of conservation in Madagascar are being realised.

The sites comprising the official Protected Area Network of Madagascar up until 2006 are listed below, and a map of the sites is given here. Currently species in the Madagascar Catalogue are only coded for these areas, but information for the current network will be available soon.
