Join us at the IInd Malagasy Primatological Society Congress

December 15-20 • Mahajanga, Madagascar

Following the success of the first Malagasy Primatological Society Congress, GERP Madagascar is organizing the second Congress in collaboration with the University of Mahajanga. The Malagasy Primatological Society Congress is recognized as an important global meeting for Malagasy and International primatologists to present and share their experiences. The topic of the Congress 2020 is “Can Lemurs be a key element for the development of Madagascar. The congress features a dynamic scientific program with cutting edge symposia, workshops, round table and posters; discussion panels with renowned primatologists, representatives from government, private sector, conservation NGOs, local communities and civil society; mangrove restoration with communities; countless networking opportunities for future collaboration to inspire lemur researchers.

The Venue of the Congress will be in Majunga, Madagascar (the details will be communicated soon).  Madagascar with its huge biological and cultural diversity is a remarkable island. It is well known for its unique lemur diversity found nowhere else in the world. We welcome you warmly on the island where forests, animals, weather and people are amazing.

The congress aims to provide a fruitful experience through the creation of opportunities for primatologists to present and share their experiences on lemur and conservation aspects, to update the information on lemurs, to help drive the conservation programme in Madagascar and to improve decision-making in conservation.
