MOU signed between MFG and the vet school of Antananarivo

I am thrilled to report that the Madagascar Fauna and Flora Group (MFG) and the veterinary school of Antananarivo, Madagascar (DESMV) have renewed their Memorandum Of Understanding earlier this week.

With this MOU the MFG and DESMV have renewed their pledge for collaboration. Both institutions recognize the importance of having veterinarians trained in the field of zoological and wildlife medicine as well as the conservation of biodiversity in Madagascar.

Madagascar Fauna and Flora Group, a conservation oriented non governmental organization is running a zoological park (the Ivoloina Park www.seemadagascar.com) and co managing  natural reserve (Betampona Strict Nature Reserve) in eastern Madagascar. With this MOU, MFG (and its’ partners) agrees to organize training for veterinary students and host senior vet students completing their thesis research on zoo and wildlife medicine.

The DESMV on the other hand is a new and the only veterinary school in Madagascar. About 30 veterinarians/year graduate from the DESMV some of which are now working for the conservation of endemic wildlife species in Madagascar.

I am proud to be a DESMV graduate and MFG’s veterinary advisor and I wish a long and fruitful collaboration to both institution.
