Anjozorobe is a typical small rural district of the Malagasy central highlands located about 56 miles in the North of the capital city Antananarivo, as well as a safe haven for the woods which has been standing there since long before the birth of our human kind. When watched from above, bush and the famous "lavaka", or craters dug by ground erosion caused by years of uncontrolled deforestation, litter the local surface over square miles. In such a derelict landscape, Anjozorobe seems like a genuine oasis. In the outskirts of the ancient borders of what Antananarivo used to be, 66 000 ha of land are still covered with top green forests. The local biodiversity's relevance in this area of the central highlands is, as expected, quite exceptional. 500 plant species, 80 bird species, half of them to be seen but on this island, and 11 lemur species out of the island's thirty identified by wildlife experts keep on thriving and developing freely in this area.
