Madagascar, an island that could be a continent as well. The flora and fauna are unique and has developed thanks to the long isolation of the island from the African mainland. Madagascar is known primarily by the lemurs and the chameleons. However, the flora is also unique and worth to explore. The country is also unique when compared to its neighbors in southern Africa. Rice is grown on terraces, people look like they have some Asian blood. Unfortunately, this paradise is in acute danger. There is bitter poverty in many parts of the island and people are exploiting nature for their survival. International help in form of, for example, solar cooking facilities, instead of charcoal, or even the development of soft tourism would be required to save the remnants of the incredible nature.
