Madagascar trekkers meet the lemurs at Paradise Wildlife Park

NOAH’s Madagascar trek team took a walk on the wild side at Paradise Wildlife Park this month, to learn more about the lemurs they might encounter on their African trekking adventure next year.

The team were lucky enough to get up close and personal with the furry critters that are endemic to Madagascar. The group were introduced to the ring-tailed lemurs for a feeding experience led by Paradise Wildlife Park keeper Amy.

We are so grateful to the Park for their support for this experience, to help us raise awareness of the trip and assist the group in raising sponsorships.

Departing November 18 to 29 2023, the group will embark on a twelve day challenge to help fundraise for NOAH, offering a once-in-lifetime trip spending five days trekking through the spectacular Andringitra National Park, before helping at a community project.

The group will summit the island’s highest peak Pic Boby and neighbouring Chameleon Peak. They’ll also be on the lookout for the endangered lemurs and other unique wildlife of the island.

Lisa Seccombe, Head of Fundraising & Community Engagement at NOAH, is encouraging anyone who may be interested in joining the trek next year to get in touch.

“This challenge will provide an opportunity to raise much needed funds for NOAH, whilst giving the participant an experience they’ll never forget. We are down to our last few places for this trip, so if you’d like to join us on this trip of a lifetime, please get in touch as soon as possible!”
