The next lecture in a new series presented by the California Center for the Arts, Escondido and EcoLife Conservation happens on Tuesday, April 30 at 7:30 p.m. with “Madagascar, Africa’s Land of Ghosts: Part One.” 

Follow Bill Toone, executive director and founder of EcoLife Conservation, and his story of a rugged 100 mile transect in the rainforest of northeastern Madagascar. 

What started as a wildlife survey, turned into a 4-year adventure living in a tiny rainforest community on the Masoala Peninsula. 

Antanambao is a community of subsistence farmers with no running water or electricity, and it was there Toone met the richest people in the world.

Shortly after his research contract ended, tragedy struck this tiny community leaving his life forever changed forever.
