Madagascar is an island off the Southeast coast of Africa about the size of the State of Texas. It is considered by scientists worldwide to be a high priority for conservation efforts both for its high number of species found no where else on earth and for its rich biodiversity.

Unfortunately, most of Madagascar's native species are threatened with extinction as deforestation proceeds at an alarming rate. With the help of foreign institutions and organizations, the Malagasy government has been trying to find ways to preserve the forests and wildlife that remain. Tropical Items Madagascar LLC which is owned and run by Malagasy natives, aims at helping preserve Madagascar's unique biodiversity by providing alternative source of income for those who live near the rainforest areas.
