Anjahakely Tree Nursery was set up in 2008 to help preserve the environment and its wildlife in the Andrafiamena-Andavakoera Protected Area in north Madagascar.
The tree nursery is located in the village of Anjahakely and fulfils an essential role in the protection of the nearby lemur habitat.
Trees planted include the endemic Schizolaena viscola species which is a lemur food source, Breanadia salicina and Intsia trees are planted at river sources to protect the waterways while Albizia lebeck is planted to improve the forage for grazing livestock.
Additionally, various palms and Dracaena trees are planted for decoration purposes at and around Black Lemur Camp. The camp, which supports the tree nursery since it was established, employs mostly staff from Anjahakely and nearby villages which supports the livelihoods of the villagers as well as inspires a culture of preservation that profits the forest's protection rather than its destruction.
A visit to the tree nursery combined with a stay at Black Lemur Camp will indirectly help save the critically endangered black lemurs as well as improve the standard of living in the villages in the area.
