Nosy Mangabe

Nosy Mangabe is part of Masoala National Park. The 520 ha island is located about 2 km offshore from the town of Maroantsetra and lies in the Gulf of Antongil.

Nosy Mangabe is most famous as a refuge for the aye-aye, a strange lemur once thought to be on the verge of extinction. The island is also known for its population of black-and-white ruffed lemurs and abundant Uroplatus geckos. Lemurs found on Nosy Mangabe:
  • Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis)
  • Eastern Avahi (Avahi laniger)
  • White-fronted Lemur Eulemur albifrons)
  • Black-and-White Ruffed Lemur (Varecia variegata)
  • Gray Mouse-lemur (Microcebus murinus)
