Welcome to MRCI

Our mission is to create a positive impact on this unique island nation and we invite you to join us on this extraordinary journey.

Who we are

MRCI is an award-winning government-approved organisation.

We are located on Nosy Komba island which is the heart of MRCI and the home base for all MRCI programs. Turtle Cove is nestled between a beautiful tropical forest and a pristine beach, overlooking Nosy Be and the world-famous Lokobe Forest Reserve. Just meters from Turtle Cove, volunteers can experience incredible coconut tree-fringed beaches with easy access to MRCI’s home coral reef which has been declared a Marine Protected Area by the Department of Environment in conjunction with the local community and Department of Fisheries.
