Summer Fieldwork in Madagascar

This summer, the DLC-SAVA Conservation project at the Duke Lemur Center is leading a Bass Connections project on bicultural sustainability in Madagascar. Four graduate students and one postdoctoral associate from Duke, one graduate student from UC Davis and one undergraduate from Macalester College (MN) are collaborating with partners in Madagascar to conduct interdisciplinary research on conservation and development in the SAVA region.

Check out these updates on their work, including an overview of their first few weeks of research; a summary of their research approach and findings so far; and a close look at local livelihoods in the region.
