Madagascar: Africa's Galapagos
On May 9, 1836, Charles Darwin sailed past the island of Madagascar, on his way to the Galapagos islands. If he'd decided to stop, he would have been astonished by the natural wonders on offer--from the predatory cat-like fossa to the eerie and majestic lemurs, of which there are over 100 individual species. Today, the mysteries of Madagascar continue to unfold before our eyes, with more than 600 new species of wildlife discovered there in just the past 20 years. Step into a world of dazzling biodiversity, unlike any other.
