Working alongside local communities helping restore and protect Madagascar's remaining forests and diverse wildlife

Our Story

“Together we are creating innovative solutions to some of Madagascar’s toughest challenges”

The Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership (MBP) is a Malagasy NGO that was established by Dr. Edward E. Louis Jr., the Director of the Conservation Genetics Department at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium in Omaha, Nebraska.

In 1998, Dr. Louis first went to Madagascar and has been returning ever since. Over the years, his program has vastly expanded from field expeditions and genetics research to working with a Malagasy staff of more than 150 people on conservation, reforestation, and community development.
