Andapotaly-Tanandahy is a village located 100 km north of Morondava in the commune of Belo sur Tsiribihina. This village is at the mouth of the Tsiribihina River.
The local community association carried out mangrove reforestation on an area of 12 hectares in Andapotaly-Tanandahy in 2011. Later, a helping hand from nature contributed to the restoration. The area has recovered its ability to regenerate itself. We currently have a dense forest of mangroves in place of the bare area. By 2021, the total area restored is 67 hectares. Women are particularly diligent when it comes to planting mangroves. For example, the women of Andapotaly-Tanandahy have created an association whose purpose is to coordinate mangrove reforestation. Animal species such as crabs, shrimps and fishes come to live in these mangroves, their place of growth and development. The restored area has also become a migration site for pink flamingos who come here to forage for food.
WWF Madagascar supported the villagers of Andapotaly-Tanandahy to structure a community-based organization that now manages these restored mangroves and the natural resources that live there. The community organization also supports its members in improving household income and well-being through income diversification and leadership capacity building for good governance of the village's natural resources.
