Our Team

Naturevolution France

Naturevolution is only in France - after more than 10 years of existence - made up of 8 people (6 full-time equivalents), a deliberately small team in order to limit operating costs and fully dedicated to the development of the association's international projects. Our main mission is to support the projects that our teams in Madagascar et en Indonesia suggest and support, first by finding the financial and human resources necessary for their deployment in the field, then by ensuring their coordination, their administrative and accounting management and finally their monitoring. We also ensure daily communication, press relations and relations with our partners, but also the development of various actions of raising awareness among schools and the general public the major current ecological issues and in particular the problem of the collapse of biodiversity.
