Madagascar: A Treetop Odyssey

Madagascar is home to one of the last untouched rainforests and some of the rarest plants and animals on earth. 75% are found nowhere else in the world. Much of this extraordinary diversity of life is found in the forest canopy, which up until now has been virtually inaccessible to scientists.

A team of 70 international scientists spent three months studying the rainforest in Mashoala Peninsula. Their mission was to document the forest's extraordinary diversity and to identify new species before they are lost forever.
