dc.description.abstractEncompassing 840 square miles in the northern region of the island, Masoala is Madagascar's largest protected area. It contains significant portions of lowland and coastal rainforest - habitats containing other lemur species such as the hairy-eared dwarf lemur. Aside from lemurs, Masoala contains a wealth of biodiversity. Recent wildlife surveys re-discovered a species previously thought to be extinct - the Madagascar serpent eagle. The park forests abound with chameleons and geckos, as well as several species of butterflies and fish which are new to science. Masoala also includes three marine reserves, designed to protect the peninsula's coral reef systems.
