Zaza Project News July 2013

Dear, Wonderful people all over the World,

I hope that you are all doing well, wherever you are 🙂

We have some exciting news to share about the Zaza Project.

I have been awarded a small research grant to cover my airfare, so at the end of July, I am returning to Madagascar for a short field season:)
I will be presenting at a conference, and am also hoping to teach the Lemur Behaviour and Ecology course again at Maromizaha.

This means that the Zaza Project research assistants are at this moment tracking down all of the lemur moms in the forest, and checking to see if anyone has babies yet….Exciting!!
It also means that I can personally oversee the distribution of Zaza Scholarship funds for this, the THIRD year of Zaza :):):)

Thanks to the generosity of so many people, we currently have enough money to fund 30 children for their next year of school. This is amazing, and makes me SO happy!!

We appreciate all that we have been able to do so far, and we are grateful for the opportunity to make such a difference in the lives of these families.

We are continuing to collect donations, so that this program can continue for future years, and we are currently trying to raise a little bit of money so that I can buy my research assistants in Madagascar new rain gear.  Let us know if you would like to help 🙂

Best wishes,

Jody & The Zaza Team
