The pressure on forests, every day more intense
Forests are a vital resource for animal species endemic to Madagascar, but also for the people living around them. They provide food, drinking water and our vital oxygen.

With no other source of energy, they are forced to survive pressures on most valuable forests. Remember that there are 2.000 mouths to feed more, every day, in the big island and that therefore the phenomenon of deforestation to increases from week to week.
