For more than 20 years, the Bezà Mahafaly Special Reserve has annually welcomed Masters students from the Forestry Department of the School of Agronomy for their Field School in biodiversity conservation. Between July 17th and July 22th, 24 students and a faculty member from the Forestry Department visited Bezà Mahafaly. With the support of the BMSR Monitoring team led by Mr Sibien Mahereza, they had classes in fauna and flora monitoring, protected area management and governance at Bezà and in Belambo Forest. Students also helped to collect data on Belambo and Ehazoara forest biodiversity. Students also visited in other protected areas and conservation sites in the Southern Madagascar (Toliara, Ranomafana, Isalo, Morondava).
