Madagascar

 

Why Madagascar?

Madagascar is a nation with over 200,000 species of plants and animals that don't exist anywhere else in the world.

 

Only 10% of Madagascar's original forests exist today.

 

75% of species found in Madagascar do not exist anywhere else on the planet.

 

Mangrove forests are essential ecosystems whose dense roots serve as an anchor for the soil and coastline, preventing erosion and creating a barrier between harsh ocean systems and land.
