      The Arboretum of Antsokay was found by 1980 at the initiative from the initiation of a passionate swiss botanist Hermann PETIGNAT. It encompasses 40 hectares in area, and it is surrounded by a living vegetal hedge, the initiator has managed to breed either by seed, by cutting or by transplantation, the most endangered plants' species it is done for preserving the greatest number of constant deforestation, bushfires and devastators.
      Due to this deforestation and these bushfires, some species of plants are endangered. However, they hold an important level of endemicity of 90% the region and 80% have some medical virtues. The arboretum possesses a collection of more than 900 species of plants of the southwest of Madagascar. Among these many succulent species are endangered. In noting this issue, Antsokay Arboretum has dedicated an area of 40 hectares to preserve this biodiversity.

      We leave gradually these wide valleys to the steppes of landscapes and mountains look tired. The tombs topped by aloalo (mortuary totem) of the Mahafaly tributes are mixing into the decoration. These are material heritages which reflect the secular custom that Malagasy people have been preserving until now. Those "handiworks" represent a particular value for the local population.
