Marojejy

Marojejy National Park protects the entire Marojejy massif. The forests, ranging from low-altitude rainforest to high-altitude montane scrub, harbor an impressive collection of plants and animals, including dozens of species of palms, ferns and epiphytes (as well as terrestrial orchids), reptiles, amphibians and lemurs, most notably the critically endangered "simpona" silky sifaka. Marojejy also hosts an unquestionably rich avifauna, indeed more species of forest-dwelling birds are found there than in any other single mountain site in Madagascar. Most notable are the greater and lesser Vasa parrot, the gray-headed lovebird, the red-breasted coua, the brown emutail, the red-tailed newtonia, the Madagascar nightjar, Chabert's vanga, and the white-browed owl.
