    A before-and-after trial in 2006-2007 in subtropical forest in Analamazaotra Special Reserve, Madagascar found that after the distribution of conservation-based activity books at two primary schools close to the reserve, poaching of diademed sifakas Propithecus diadema and black and white ruffed lemurs Varecia variegata editorum appeared to have ceased. Both species were hunted to extinction in the past and reintroduced into the reserve. Furthermore, two black and white ruffed lemurs were presumably poached before the project had been launched. A total of 350 activity books for pupils and 22 teacher guides were distributed. No further details were provided.
