Global Conservation

 

Madagascar is renowned for its beautiful wildlife and vegetation. Sadly, competitive farming threatens some of its incredible species. Many of the impoverished Malagasy farmers live in poor conditions. They see the forest as their only resource. Therefore, to ensure the safety of Madagascar’s precious and unique species, scientists are collecting samples for seed banks. It’s “ a race against time” to make all of the collections necessary.

What Our Students Are Saying

“I have been on three of Nancy’s Learn French and Travel programs. Prior to departure, Nancy offers introductory programs, where travelers become acquainted with each other and learn about the regions they will be touring. Before each tour, there is also a wine and cheese tasting where group members become acquainted with the wines and cheeses of the regions to be visited. Nancy’s tours visit buildings and places of historic interest as well as various museums. Nancy’s small groups enjoy comradery and good food. I have found Nancy’s tours to be both educational and enjoyable.”
