Die Association Mitsinjo wurde 1999 von Bewohnern des nahen Dorfes Andasibe gegründet, um vom wachsenden Tourismus profitieren zu können. 2003 übernahm die Organisation das Management des Waldes von Analamazaotra, der in der Folge zum Mitsinjo-Park gemacht wurde. Mehr als 50 Einwohner von Andasibe, darunter zahlreiche hervorragend ausgebildete Guides, kümmern sich heute um den Wald, um den Naturschutz und die Weiterentwicklung des Parks, um den Tourismus und um die Forschung.
