About this book These very species are today among the planet's most threatened since 90% of the surface area of forest which.

A journey into the heart of the most exceptional rainforest in the world, where a large diversity of animals and plants emblematic of Madagascar, such as lemurs, chameleons and orchid live. These very species are today among the planet's most threatened since 90% of the surface area of forest which covered the island has disappeared, half of that during the last 50 years. A fight has been undertaken very recently to combat deforestation and promote reforestation of the forest corridors between the newly created protected areas.

Deforestation in Madagascar is an ongoing environmental issue. Deforestation creates agricultural or pastoral land but can also result in desertification, water resource degradation, biodiversity erosion and habitat loss, and soil loss

Deforestation in Madagascar is an ongoing environmental issue. Deforestation creates agricultural or pastoral land but can also result in desertification, water resource degradation, biodiversity erosion and habitat loss, and soil loss. It has been noticed that Madagascar has lost 80 or 90% of its 'original' or 'pre-human' forest cover, but this claim is difficult to prove and is not supported by evidence.

Protestant Christianity boasts 25% of Madagascar’s population.

Adherents of the religion observe various taboos (fady) to avoid the disapproval of the ancestors. Protestant Christianity boasts 25% of Madagascar’s population. The religion is mainly rooted among the Merina ethnic group, who are concentrated in the country’s central highlands. Protestantism Christianity on the island is traced back to 1818 when the first Christian Missionaries from the London Missionary Society arrived. The missionaries translated the Bible, erected churches and began converting the Malagasy people.

The worship of the Old Gods remained strong among the First Men in. .

The worship of the Old Gods remained strong among the First Men in Westeros until the invasion of the Andals six thousand years ago, who brought the Faith of the Seven with them from the east. The Andals slaughtered the Children of the Forest, viewing their magic as an abomination before the Seven. The religion believes in innumerable and unnamed nature gods, the spirits of each tree, each rock, and each stream. Weirwoods are considered sacred in the religion, and heart trees are the closest thing to a "shrine" that it possesses. A weirwood face among the statues of gods from many religions kept in the House of Black and White in Braavos.

J���¸rgen Ruud worked in Madagascar from1934 to 1954 as a Lutheran minister sent out by the Norwegian Missionary Society. However, he followed the rather unusual tradition of combining his missionary activities with the intensive study of the language and customs of the indigenous population. The relationship between the Malagasy and their ancestors is quite exceptional. The Madagascan believes in the invisible and lives in a mysterious world in which the living and dead are in perpetual confrontation. The author introduces us to this hidden domain where one must always be on guard against the forces of evil and seek to attract favorable influences. The book touches on ideas and religious practices of extreme importance to the Tan��� la tribe.
