Experience désastreuse avec cet organisme qui se targue de sauver les tortues mais ne fait principalement que les enfermer dans des petits enclos ! Personnellement je me suis retrouvée perdue au fin-f... more »Disastrous experience with this organization which prides itself to save turtles but is mainly that lock them up in small pens! Personally I get lost at the bottom end of Mada, I was supposed to join a team, it's two people who know nothing to turtles and leave the volunteers do all the work! They don't teach you that once there you have to pay to be there, once you're in the middle of the Malagasy sticks and it's too late to stop now, and treatment is not the even if you are European or Malagasy (Malagasy volunteers pay nothing). In addition we learn anything for turtles, we do nothing otherwise maintain a zoo to the eye! Yes they're releasing, but there are thousands locked up in Madagascar, to likely to Senegal, and Gonfaron where volunteers come together to build a zoo! Support in VDT Madagascar is a total scam, both for the volunteers (which I had the misfortune to be part) one steals only for tourists who you lie! And the Manager Bernard Devaux lying shamelessly, "forgetting" to tell the volunteers that they will face, denying that the Malagasy people are not treated like Europeans, and refusing to repay the amount that the volunteers had to go out, or even to listen to what they say! In short... RUN AWAY! -_-
Parc très sympa et intéressant. Ça change des serpents et animaux communs. Tout est fait pour à la fois intéresser, informer, sensibiliser et faire découvrir un univers qu'on ne connait pas. Aucun pro... more »Very nice and interesting Park. It changes the snakes and common animals. Everything is done to both engage, inform, educate and to discover a universe that we do not know. No problem with young children in stroller.
Super, parc très agréable, avec plusieurs types de tortues ainsi qu un petit parc avec des tables. Parc qui respecte la nature et très propre. Snack ferme pendant notre passage more »Great, very nice Park, with several types of turtles as well as a small park with tables. Park that respects nature and very clean. Snack close during our passage
This park is more about conservation than it is a park for the family and children: the focus really is on the animals. There is an effort to educate the public with small texts, but this could be improved and updated. Accessibility for disabled people is poor as the focus is not on the visitors but on the animals: the visitors are just a means to get some funding for their conservation work.
Guy CanyIf you're in the area for a visit. In a nice setting advises by passionate people you can instruct you distracting you... your children will love
Julie GuérinReally nice, full of things to see. Well thought out, you little even circulate in stroller
Coyote BettyboopFantastic, fun place for kids, we learn many things on the turtles. A big bravo and d encouragement for this association and its volunteers.
Claude-David DimierVery playful, family. Volunteers and professionals working there are very friendly. Don't hesitate to sponsor a turtle or several CAs can help the association which takes care of all that.
