Today is International Day of the Girl! This years theme is ‘Innovating For Girls Education.’ Did you know there is a demonstrated link between girls’ literacy and improved conservation outcomes? We are committed to teaching girls in Madagascar and around the world about conservation and lemurs. How can we help girls in Madagascar steward their communities for their future and their children’s future? The UN declared ‘International Day of the Girl Child’ two years ago to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.
How many women scientists do you know who are inspiring girls in conservation? Want to know how you can be an inspiration? Check out Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls on Facebook. Help girls find a bright and productive future for themselves and their communities.
