Contributor Post | WeForest - Madagascar Chameleon Habitat Conservation


Nick Henn of Canvas Chameleons
Growing up I've always had a fascination for animals, especially reptiles and amphibians. I raised all kinds of reptiles but the one that has always had my heart is the Chameleon. They have become my passion and I truly enjoy every moment working with them. They are both beautiful and fascinating creatures and I have made it my goal to help others learn about chameleons so they too can sharing in their unique and breath-taking beauty.

Madagascar is facing major environmental problems such as deforestation, habitat destruction, agriculture fires, erosion and soil degradation. An effort must be made in order to help reforest Madagascar and prevent the loss of its amazing biodiversity and unique ecosystems. Being home to about half of the world’s 160 or so species of chameleons, Madagascar is one of the most important countries to all chameleon enthusiasts. 

Unfortunately, Madagascar is among the world's poorest countries. As such, the Malagasy people’s survival is dependent upon natural resource use. Most must live off the land that surrounds them, making use of whatever resources they can find. Their poverty costs the country and the world through the loss of the island's endemic biodiversity.

Our love for chameleons has no boundaries and to do our part, we would like to introduce to the chameleon community an amazing non-profit association called WeForest. They recognize that some of today’s biggest challenges are global warming and poverty. WeForest has a very simple solution for both. We restore our natural resources while providing social justice. Planting bio-diverse forests in the poorest countries cools our climate and provides jobs for men and women which enables them to feed and educate their children.

WeForest currently has project sites all across the world but there are two special sites that stand out to us as they are in the heart of Madagascar. One on the north eastern coast in the village of Ampohibe and a second on the central western coast in the village of Kalamboro.

The Canvas Chameleons team is so pleased to have arranged with WeForest that all funds donated on our behalf are allocated directly towards these two project sites in Madagascar. Every dollar donated through the Canvas Chameleons website will plant two trees directly in Madagascar. All general donations made directly through the WeForest website will be divided among all the project sites and will plant trees all over the world.

We strive to give all chameleons the best homes as possible which includes all the wild chameleons of Madagascar.

Please Help Us Help Madagascar!
