Marcus Clarke's comment, November 29, 2012 9:38 AM
I visited the Virungas about 15 years ago. The NP is surrounded by subsistence farmers farming land that was once rainforest. There are few trees left outside the park, and the temptation to cut timber and grow extra crops is great. What they really need is REDD+ or similar to encourage them to replant the forests and derive a decent income from the land. It is a very poor region and they need real help to develop beyond survival.

83% of Madagascar’s palms near extinction - and 20,219 other species

83% of Madagascar’s palms near extinction - and 20,219 other species | The Wild Planet | Scoop.it
Hyderabad, India – Eighty three percent of Madagascar’s palms are threatened with extinction, putting the livelihoods of local people at risk – according to the latest update of The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ released today by the...

October 17, 2012 Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)

“The high extinction risk faced by Madagascar’s palms reflects the decline in these forests, which threatens all of the remarkable wildlife that occurs there.”

Forests have been rapidly shrinking as land is being cleared for agriculture and logging.

“The figures on Madagascar’s palms are truly terrifying, especially as the loss of palms impacts both the unique biodiversity of the island and its people,” says Dr Jane Smart, Global Director, IUCN Biodiversity Conservation Group. “This situation cannot be ignored.”
