Association Mitsinjo was formed in 1999 by residents of the village of Andasibe in east-central Madagascar. Interested to work as guides for the growing number of tourists visiting the region, their work eventually grew into much more. In 2003, they gained management of the Analamazaotra Forest Station, now known as Mitsinjo Park. They also work in the Torotorofotsy Ramsar Site in close collaboration with Asity Madagascar. The Forest Station and Tororofotsy are now our main focal areas for conservation, research and sustainable development initiatives.
