Panorama

Zone humide de Mandrozo. 05/06/12; Mahajanga; 15,145 ha; 17°32'27"S 044°05'47"E. A permanent freshwater lake surrounded by marshes, irrigated rice farms, and portions of dried forests, as well as savannah lands. Forming part of the western continental waters of the country, it is the fourth largest lake in Madagascar. It supports diverse species throughout their life cycles, including the IUCN Red-Listed Madagascar Big-headed Turtle (Erymnochelys madagascariensis) and the Madagascar Fish-eagle (Haliaeetus vociferoides), as well as the Sakalava Rail (Amaurornis olivieri) and a diversity of threatened reptile species. The site is also an important spawning ground and source of food for fishes; it is important for irrigation as well and serves as a source of livelihood for hundreds of dependent families. It also has a cultural value as it is inhabited by typical communities that promote the sustainable management of resources by traditional agricultural and fishery practices. There is an ongoing project for the classification of the site as a protected area, which would also increase its eco-tourism potential. Ramsar Site no. 2049. Most recent RIS information 2012.
