ICTE (Institute for the Conservation of Tropical Environments) and MICET (Malagasy Institut pour la Conservation des Ecosystèmes Tropicaux) have been implementing conservation projects in Madagascar since 1991. They have been critical in sponsoring and facilicating Sadabe activities at Tsinjoarivo since 2000.   Based in Washington DC, but with field offices in 29 countries throughout the world, CI is one of the world's leadest international conservation NGOs. Sadabe has worked with the CI Madagascar staff since 2007 to co-ordinate conservation at Tsinjoarivo within a regional and national framework. Since 2009, CI Madagascar has been the main funding source for our development and conservation initiatives.   The Madagascar Ankizy Fund is an NGO dedicated to improving the quality of education and health care available to children in remote regions of Madagascar. It was founded by Dr. David Krause as an outgrowth of his paleontological research in Berivotra, NW Madagascar, and activities in Madagascar include the construction of schools and hosting dental clinics.
