Abstract

On the island of Madagascar, due to its characteristic and high biodiversity, we can find many protected areas. In the list of these areas, there is also National park Marojejy. It is located in the eastern part of the island, where the rain forests and favourable conditions have caused a development of a large number of endemic plants and animals. Mammal fauna is very diverse and significant. However, we can only find five groups of mammals on Madagascar but they are represented by many interesting species. Besides native, in the park we can also find some introduced species. Although the park area is under protection and a number of organizations are dealing with that, park is facing many problems. The biggest are illegal logging, hunting and eating the already endangered species. In addition to that, the education of the population is insufficient. These organizations are investing hard work and labour to try and resolve these problems, because if the destruction continues more and more plant and animal species will disappear from the area, and thereby disappear from Earth and it will be too late to react and prevent the permanent damage.
