Makay, a wildlife refuge on Madagascar

Exposition Makay, un refuge en terre malgache

16 October 2020 - 22 August 2021

Set off on an expedition into one of the planet's last pockets of biodiversity!
Consisting of a complex network of hundreds of canyons, the Makay range in south-west Madagascar is a monumental natural feature. Its valleys have become a haven for wildlife, enabling groups of animals and plants to diverge to the point that they form new species. The exhibition is an immersive experience in this little-known geological labyrinth, which, even though it is difficult to access, is threatened by growing human activities.


The exhibition 'Makay, a wildlife refuge on Madagascar' is supported by Madagascar's Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development.
In partnership with Le Monde, France 3 Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Le Bonbon, Science et Vie Junior, Ushuaïa TV, Europe 1.
With the support of Fondation Terre d’Initiatives Solidaires
