Like nothing you'll see anywhere else
One of a Kind
If a species is endemic, it means it is found nowhere else on Earth. On Madagascar, 97% of species are endemic! That is why Madagascar is perhaps the most exotic place on Earth, almost everything on it is totally unique!
Since these species are found nowhere else on Earth, saving small pieces of land here will immediately preserve entire species, including charismatic, important, undiscovered and plain weird varieties that can both delight and inform!
Having such variety contained solely in such a small space also makes these species doubly vulnerable. Small mistakes here can eradicate types of creature and plant that not only represent millions of years of independent evolution, but whole families whose like cannot be replaced.
