Good things come in small packages
Variety is the Spice of Life
Despite making up less than 0.1% of the Earth's surface, Madagascar has almost 3% of all types of life on it, making it one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, easily comparable with the entire Mediterranean basin, Great Barrier Reef or Indonesian Archipelago.
Such incredible diversity in such a concentrated area means that for a much reduced effort, we can save as many species as saving the Amazon rain-forest, which would represent a huge win for conservation efforts worldwide. For example half of all chameleons and a quarter of all primates call Madagascar home!
What's at Stake
Much of this biodiversity is found nowhere else on Earth and once lost, it will never come back. That means small mistakes now can have permanent effects and losses for everyone. If we work to save Madagascar's ecosystems we can help vulnerable habitats and vulnerable people
