Save a forest by fighting protein deficiency
 
Farmers living around the Makira Protected Area need to replace the resources they lost when excluded from it. Phase I of the CPALI project focused on teaching farmers how to raise endemic species of silk moths on endemic host trees. Eight thousand cocoons ($60 value) results in 8 kg of potentially high value insect protein, the equivalent of two red-ruffed lemurs. Phase II will focus on reducing childhood malnutrition by introducing silk moth pupae for high value protein. project reportread updates from the field
Artisan training for women in Madagascar
 
A crucial part of our project in Madagascar is focused on financial and social empowerment for women. The artisan training workshops are the single most important component of reaching that goal. They provide an opportunity to work with women one-on-one, provide job training, leadership training and ultimately put financial power in the hands of women in rural households. project reportread updates from the field
Wild Silk Training Center for 300 in Madagascar!
 
Help CPALI build a wild silk training center for rural farmers in Madagascar! Site includes a massive butterfly garden made from local materials, vegetable gardens and host trees for hands-on demonstrations. Now we need to raise funds for the 20,000 dollar training center we will build on our land! Special thanks to the Boston Architects for Humanity for designing the blueprints. project reportread updates from the field
Help Farmers Rear Silk Moths to Restore Forests
 
Sustainable management of the Makira Forest requires changes in the practices of local subsistence farmers. CPALI teaches them silk rearing that bolsters family income by 60-200% and restores habitat. project reportread updates from the field
