Premier tour agency based in Vienna, Austria, NiCe Dive & Trips GmbH has launched an exclusive travel to the captivating archipelago of Nosy Be, Madagascar from the 25th of September to the 4th of October 2023. The tour is in support of the World Sustainability Foundation’s conservation project aimed at saving endangered Lemurs.
Nosy Be is Madagascar’s largest and most developed tourist destination, and acts as the main gateway to a stunning archipelago. Since its inception, NiCe Dive & Trips has facilitated exceptional travel experiences with a focus on conserving biodiversity.
World Sustainability Foundation is the non-profit arm of leading global sustainability organization, the World Sustainability Organization. The World Sustainability Foundation is supporting the University of Turin and its strategic partners, which are conducting the only ongoing long-term study on singing lemurs (Indri indri) in the Maromizaha forest.
Endemic to the island of Madagascar, Lemurs are classified as the world’s most endangered mammals by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, resulting from human-induced activities; with many species having gone extinct in the last 200 years. By participating in NiCe Dive & Trips exclusive travel to Madagascar, you can contribute to efforts to ‘Save the Lemurs’ through the restoration of degraded forest areas, while acquiring a symbolic adoption of a lemur and a related adoption certificate!

It is our priority to support this commitment for the betterment of our environment, and collectively contribute to the conservation of nature.” Noted Nina Dittrich, Founder of NiCe Dive & Trips.
A percentage of the travel package fees of each participant is being donated to the World Sustainability Foundation in support of efforts to protect the singing lemur. Currently, 5 bamboo and endemic tree nurseries in the villages around the Maromizaha forest are being managed through the initiative.
“Due to the diverse and well-developed conservation projects embarked upon by the World Sustainability Foundation over the years, we deemed it necessary to design our exclusive travel collaboratively” Nina Dittrich highlighted.
