The Betsiboka River estuary in northwestern Madagascar is one of the fastest-changing coastlines in the world. Decades worth of extensive logging in Madagascar’s rainforests and coastal mangroves has lead to widespread erosion, causing bright red soil to wash into the river and out to sea. In some areas, soil losses have approached 112 tons per acre, the largest amount recorded anywhere in the world.
