I am so angry after I watched this video on Malagasy rosewood traffic. And also surprised to learn that a lot of instruments, violins and guitars were made of precious woods also coming from Madagascar, like ebony.

Fortunately, there are some courageous people like Sascha von Bismarck fighting against illegal traffic.

Check out their website :

Just one thing: the video is translated into French

    I don’t know if you have read this article (10 pages) http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2010/09/madagascar/draper-text/1
    The sad part: The Malagasy government (both the previous and the current) is partner in crime.
