Centre ValBio

Centre ValBio is an amazing world class research facility on the edge of Ranomafana National Park in Madagascar. It’s under the direction  and leadership of primatologist Dr. Patricia Wright. This was home base for us as we travelled and learned in Madagascar. We were lucky to be so close to Dr. Wright and where she does her research. Dr. Wright taught us quite a bit about the Centre, its mission, and even let us see some of her current research on bones.
