    The Makay massif, in the heart of the island of Madagascar, is a real treasure trove of biodiversity. To improve scientific knowledge and promote this exceptional territory, trades are working hand in hand. From fauna to flora, without forgetting the many discoveries
    archaeological sites, each data collected is an argument for the preservation of the fragile Makay.

    In 6 themes, the exhibition invites the visitor to discover behind the scenes of these expeditions carried out since 2010 and reveals the major issues involved in the preservation of this site. It allows you to enter the base camp and discover the working methods of the scientists as well as their equipment. Thanks to several videos, visitors discover concretely the reality on the ground.

    Observing the Makay through the prism of the threats that weigh on it and impact it in the short and long term makes it possible to understand the urgency of such preservation, and more broadly that of the world's natural heritage today in danger. Solutions exist through initiatives carried out locally by the Naturevolution association, manager of the New Protected Area.

    How to act on a daily basis, reduce our ecological footprint, create a parallel between expedition and daily life? Through a few eco-gestures, the exhibition allows visitors to reflect on the impact of their own practices on their environment and offers actions accessible to all.
