Investigation Into the Illegal Felling, Transport and Export of Precious Wood in Sava Region Mada

In the period since February 2009, a dramatic increase in the felling and cutting of rosewood has been reported in the SAVA Region of north-east Madagascar. As a result, several investigative missions have been sent into the region to gather evidence of these activities. These missions have been organised by the Malagasy Forestry Administration, the management of the National Parks of Masoala and Marojejy, and the Malagasy National Environment and Forest Observatory (Observatoire National de l’Environnement et du Secteur Forestier, or ONESF).
