First Photo of the Day!

Here is our first photo of the day, taken during an EIA investigation in Madagascar by Toby Smith.

During investigations, the EIA team observed intensive logging of rosewood trees in the northeast of Masoala National Park, and transport of logs to Antalaha. The intensive transport of rosewood in broad daylight, on sections of road policed by Gendarmerie posts, both to the south and to the north of Antalaha, demonstrates a serious breakdown in the rule of law – if not the active collusion of law enforcement authorities with illegal timber traffickers. Our team will continue to analyze the documentation and evidence assembled during the investigations. This will enable a better understanding of the extent of the fraud committed, and a clarification of the international export chains of illegally harvested precious woods from Madagascar.
