SAVING MADAGASCAR'S ENVIRONMENT for Kids

While Madagascar has environmental problems, many people are working very hard to save its forests and native species. Today Madagascar has one of the best park systems in Africa and the country is trying to attract ecotourists. Ecotourists are travelers who are interested in nature and local culture, and want to minimize their impact on the environment. Ecotourism is helping the economy of Madagascar by providing work opportunities for local people as guides, cooks, and porters while providing money for conservation efforts
