由巴西文化部長費雷拉主持的34屆世界遺產委員會,決定將阿齊納納納雨林馬達加斯加)列入《瀕危世界遺產清單》,原因是此處遺產地的非法盜伐林木與捕獵已瀕臨絕種的狐猴

世遺委員會關注當地無視法律禁令,為圖私利而非法輸出玫瑰木與黑檀木,而且馬達加斯加當局還對這些盜伐的木材發給輸出許可。委員會還注意到若干簽署《世界遺產公約》的國家已被查知是這些非法盜伐林木的輸入國。

委員會力促馬達加斯加必須採取所有可行的措施,強化法律禁令,而且遏止非法盜伐林木的行徑。同時也鼓勵各締約國為此召集一次相關國家的高階會議,確保這些源自馬達加斯加的非法盜伐木材能被禁止並確實阻擋它們進入各國的國內市場。

由於與其它陸地分隔已超過6千萬年以上,馬達加斯加發展出孤立的植物與動物生命型態。阿齊納納納雨林的範圍涵蓋馬國東側6座國家公園,對於維護目前馬達加斯加島上現存獨特的生態多樣化形式,在在生態進程的必要性上被評價為具有相當的重要性,同時也具體反映出當地的地質史。不過有許多物種都日漸稀少且遭受生存威脅,尤其是靈長類與狐猴。

The World Heritage Committee holding its 34th session chaired by João Luiz da Silva Ferreira, the Minister of Culture of Brazil, has inscribed the Rainforests of the Atsinanana (Madagascar) on the List of World Heritage in Danger because of illegal logging and hunting of endangered lemurs on the site.

The Committee noted that despite a decree outlawing the exploitation and export of rosewood and ebony, Madagascar continues to provide export permits for illegally logged timber. It also noted that countries that had ratified  the World Heritage Convention are known destinations for this timber.

The Committee urged the Madagascar to take all necessary measures to enforce the decree and halt ilegal logging actvities. It also encouraged the State Party to organise a high level meeting of countries concerned  to ensure that illegal timber originating from Madagascar is both banned and prevented from entering their national markets.

 Having completed its separation from all other land masses more than 60 million years ago, Madagascar's plant and animal life evolved in isolation. The Rainforests of Atsinanana, comprising six national parks on the eastern side of the country, are critically important for maintaining ongoing ecological processes necessary for the survival of the island's unique biodiversity, which reflects its geological history. Many species are rare and threatened, especially primates and lemurs.
