Madagascar is a mix of habitats:
The North is rainforest; the North West is dry deciduous, broad leaf forest; the middle Eastern section is evergreen forest; the South is dry, spiny forest and baobabs.

Northern Madagascar

THE HUMID FOREST (Extreme NW, N, NE)
This area has the largest rainforests left on the island, and as such some of the last populations of certain species. BLACK and BLUE-EYED BLACK, RED RUFFED, BLACK & WHITE RUFFED, CROWNED lemurs, GOLDEN CROWNED SIFAKA, INDRI and several BROWN species. The region called MASOALA in the NE is located in a real rainforest, and is obviously the wettest place in the island. It is the only place one can see RED-RUFFED LEMURS in the wild, and several birds too, namely the HELMET VANGA. Several small beach lodges cater to visitors here. At certain times of the year, large numbers of HUMP BACK whales congregate in the bay area around Masoala.

Western Madagascar

WESTERN DRY FOREST (NW)
This very pleasant habitat almost mirrors the humid rain forest of the eastern side. Starting north of Toliare to the very top of the island.

A great number of specialized birds are found here, such as SUBDESERT MESITE as well as reptiles. COQUEREL’S SIFAKA is also found here in numbers.

The mudflats offshore both north and south from the town of Mahajunga are where the remaining BERNIER’S or MADAGASCAR TEAL are found. If one is lucky, may be seen at low tide in between the mangrove islands feeding in the shallow very muddy waters.
