First hand field and undercover footage from Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) shows the illegal logging crisis that hit Madagascar’s national parks since early 2009, and how the illegal wood is turned into luxury furniture and other goods in China, Europe and the US.

Please see EIA and Global Witness’s October 2010 report, “Investigation into Global Trade in Malagasy Precious Woods: Rosewood, Ebony, and Pallisander”, for more details. Also see EIA and Global Witness’s November 2009 report, “investigation into the illegal felling, transport and export of precious wood in SAVA Region, Madagascar.” Available at both organizations’ websites.
