If there is one thing I would like to say to anyone contemplating such a trip is that you must simply open up your heart and mind and dive right in. It is an experience everyone should have in their lifetime. For you and for all the others who cannot make this trip or one like it, I say this, the world is a place you cannot even grasp in your wildest dreams, only by seeing it and feeling it can you begin to glimpse its wonder. Please help us to protect it in any way you can. is one of many countries that needs our help, our understanding and our love. It is a very precious island, being the only home to countless species of plants and animals including the lemur. If the destruction continues, if we don't spend time helping its people find ways to live in harmony with the environment, it wont be long before we all loose these creatures forever. We can all help just by spreading the word.
My most sincere thanks to everyone at WWF International and Madagascar for making this possible, to Sahondra for always being there, to Marcel and my family in Ambodivohitra, Andapa for their never ending kindness and to my 6 companions for their hard work and friendship.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I hope we can all pull through.
