Mahaliana means "to spark interest" in the Malagasy language. With this organization, we aim to advance conservation science in Madagascar while "leveling the playing field for Malagasy scientists".

Mahaliana's team is composed by two scientists with wide experience in veterinary sciences, conservation biology and public health in Madagascar. In addition, a number of students and volunteer are complementing the team while conducting temporary research project.
