Our team

Naturevolution France

In France, Naturevolution is made up of just a few people, a team deliberately kept small to limit operating costs and entirely devoted to developing the association’s international projects. Our main mission is to support the projects suggested and carried out by our teams in Madagascar and Indonesia, firstly by finding the financial and human resources needed to deploy them in the field, then by coordinating their administrative and accounting management, and finally by monitoring them. On a day-to-day basis, we also handle communications, press relations and relations with our partners, as well as the development of a range of initiatives to raise awareness among schoolchildren and the general public of today’s major ecological challenges, and in particular the issue of the collapse of biodiversity.

Naturevolution Makay

Naturevolution Makay’s team, our malagasy branch, works in close collaboration with theFrench team to specificallyprotect the Makay Massif in Madagascar and support the communities that depend on it. At present (2023), the association has a 100% Malagasy team of almost 100 permanent field staff, 9/10ths of whom are Makay inhabitants. It supports a range of initiatives in the field in full collaboration with the local population and all stakeholders (local authorities, tourism professionals, ministries, etc.).
