Nosy Ankao

A small island of around 10km2, Nosy Ankao is part of a larger protected marine area and has a transient population, mainly fisherman. This has lead to overfishing caused local conservationists in the area to devise a plan that provided alternative employment by way of seaweed farming so as to reduce fishing pressure since the anti-cyclone makes the area so rich in nutrients. Several lemur species inhabit the island’s forest, including the crowned lemur, golden-crowned sifaka and Perrier’s sifaka. Surrounded by coral reefs, it is also perfect for scuba diving and snorkelling.
