Click here to read EIA and Global Witness’s new report that investigates the global trade in Madagascar’s precious woods.

Undercover investigations by EIA and Global Witness over the past year exposed the illicit trade in Madagascar’s precious woods such as rosewood, ebony and pallisander. The bulk of these exports serve the lucrative furniture markets of China, with some pieces being sold at upwards of $1 million. Small quantities of these exports head to Europe and the US for use in the manufacturing of musical instruments. These markets facilitate and promote the demand for Madagascar’s precious woods, which has decimated the country’s few remaining precious forests. To learn more about these issues and to see what EIA uncovered during their investigations, read the report and read the press release.
