Biodiversity hotspot

Madagascar is one of the most important biodiversity hotspots in the world. More than 160 million years ago Madagascar broke away from Africa and is a living example of flora and fauna evolution in isolation; undisturbed by outside influences and human beings. Over 70% of animals and 90% of plants found in Madagascar are endemic; found nowhere else on the world. The variety is also extreme in hosting 5% of all animal and plant species known to man.
