About this book

Language: French, also available in English

A journey into the heart of the most exceptional rainforest in the world, where a large diversity of animals and plants emblematic of Madagascar, such as lemurs, chameleons and orchid live. These very species are today among the planet's most threatened since 90% of the surface area of forest which covered the island has disappeared, half of that during the last 50 years. A fight has been undertaken very recently to combat deforestation and promote reforestation of the forest corridors between the newly created protected areas.

Summary in French:
Un voyage au coeur de la forêt pluviale la plus exceptionnelle au monde, où vit une grande diversité d’animaux et de plantes emblématiques de Madagascar, tels que les lémuriens, les caméléons et les orchidées. Ces mêmes espèces comptent aujourd’hui parmi les plus menacées de la planète puisque 90 % de la surface de forêt qui couvrait l’île ont disparu, dont la moitié durant les 50 dernières années. Une lutte a été engagée très récemment contre la déforestation et en faveur du reboisement de corridors forestiers entre les aires protégées nouvellement créées.
