Madagascar’s Baobabs Saved!

Great news for the giant Baobab trees of Madagascar.  Authorities have stopped the dumping of excess water into the Baobabs’ habitat by rice farmers.  Since this “last minute rescue operation” the roots of these great trees have stopped rotting, and the marsh where the Baobabs live has become covered with purple-pink hyacinths!

Many of the farmers have started growing peanuts which can survive in a dryer environment and some locals are now selling artisan crafts to tourists who come to see the Baobabs.  Madagascar is doing a great job of keeping its most famous trees healthy.  Help replant all the others by playing Tilt World, the game where your points plant trees!
