What's new in Maroantsetra

By Mamy Ratsimbazafy | Project Director

Hi Tomorrow I`ll go to Ambodivoangy with Judicael by WCS boat. I would like to see the farmers activities there, and also we will meet RANOSY justin`s wife (RANOSY Justin died in April and was one of the CPALI 5). The boat will come back on Wednesday

Mario and Bertrand will take care of the house and the rearing. Every morning they collect the eggs and clean all rearing equipments. Now, the main Mario and Bertrand activities are to remove the chrysalid from cocoon and wash the cocoon one by one, dry them, seperate the cocoon according the color. Also we still have a few larvae ready to spin in the house. After my mission to Ambodivoangy, Mario and Bertrand will continue to collect the larvae in the field.

- Another news, Marie Jeanne found 5 Argema cocoons (without chrysalids) in her land. She found those cocoons on the tree. This discovering show us that Argema exist in Maroantsetra, I do not sure if the tree that she found the cocoon is the Argema`s food-plant, so I need the verify that with Denis. Setting up the Argema`s cocoon production maybe possible if we arrive to identify the food-plant and now we are working on that. (Argema mittrei feeds on a mature forest tree and produces silk that can be used for many more purposes than suraka - this is an important advance to the program!).

That`s all the news, thank you very much Veloma
