Since Madagascar was separated from the African mainland approximately 100 million years ago, rare plants and wildlife, dating back to prehistoric times and already extinct elsewhere, have continued to exist here. They can be spotted on a tour of the pavilion leading through the various regions of the island. In 1991, in order to ensure that this impressive variety of species of plant and wildlife continue to exist, Madagascar introduced a national programme to protect the environment and its nature. Examples of this are exhibited at the pavilion.
