Protecting the unique plants and animals that live on Madagascar
while fueling economic growth has been a priority for the Malagasy
state, international donors, and conservation NGOs since the late
1980s. Forest and Labor in Madagascar shows how poor rural workers
who must make a living from the forest balance their needs with the
desire of the state to earn foreign revenue from ecotourism and
forest-based enterprises. Genese Marie Sodikoff examines how the
appreciation and protection of Madagascar s biodiversity depend on
manual labor. She exposes the moral dilemmas workers face as both
conservation representatives and peasant farmers by pointing to the
hidden costs of ecological conservation."
