Madagascar | Experts urge immediate action to stem poaching in PAs to save country's biodiversity

As President Andry Rajoelina marked 100 days at the helm of Madagascar on April 30, an international team of conservation experts weighed in on how to shape the country’s conservation goals and address persistent challenges. They warned that the fate of the country’s rich natural heritage hung in the balance.


The president’s record during his last term, from 2009 to 2014, when he rode to power following a coup d’état, does not augur well for natural resource management in the country, but there is room for cautious optimism, according to an opinion piece published in Nature Sustainability.
