Madagascar's long disengagement from the neighboring mainlands has brought about a one of a kind blend of widely varied vegetation; huge numbers of which are one of a kind and endemic to Madagascar. This has driven a few environmentalists to allude to Madagascar as the "eighth mainland". Of the 10,000 plants local to Madagascar, 90% are discovered no place else on the planet. Madagascar's shifted plants and creatures are jeopardized by human movement, as 33% of it's local vegetation has vanished since the 1970s and since the entry of people 2,000 years prior, Madagascar has lost over 90% of it's unique woods. Most lemurs are recorded as imperiled or undermined species.
