Living in Madagascar

Madagascar is a large island to the east of Mozambique, towards the bottom of Africa. Several small islands surrounding Madagascar also are included in it territory. 24,900,000 million people live on the island; this people are well dispersed around the island, as the capital city, Antananarivo, only has approximately 1,600,000 residents. Madagascans speak either Malagasy or French, and over 17 different ethnic groups make up the country’s population. 9 out of 10 Madagascan citizens are Christians, and Protestantism is the predominant denomination. In terms of Madagascar’s exports, clothing is the largest product sector, while seafood and spices also are significant. Madagascar is perhaps best known for its wildlife and environment. 90% of Madagascar’s flora and fauna is exclusive to the island and is therefore of great scientific interest. The ring-tailed lemur is one of Madagascar’s most recognisable native animals. However, despite the awareness of Madagascar’s biodiversity, the island is facing some environmental threats; mainly, from human development on the island. The ‘slash and burn’ approach to deforestation is part of Madagascan culture, but is highly damaging to ecosystems because it means nutrients are not returned to the soil when the trees are felled. As a result, soil is becoming eroded, and more new land is required to sustain agriculture, leading to more slash and burn and perpetuating the damage. The government has increased environmental protection as a result.
