Mohamed bin Zayed Species project number 10251616
This project assessed the extinction risk of Malagasy reptiles. The main activity was an expert workshop held in Madagascar that brought together a number of herpetologists to discuss the conservation and biology of Malagasy lizards and snakes. The workshop was opened and closed by Mrs. Laurette Rasoavahiny, the Director of the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Protected Areas in the Ministry of Environment and Forests and it received national media coverage on the final day. The assessments completed during the workshop were submitted to the IUCN/SSC for verfification and its is hoped that they will be integrated into the Red List later in 2011.
