Masoala is currently encountering a 1% deforestation rate.
Illegal logging is also a constant problem Masoala is facing. Towns
are growing and establishing, creating more demand on more room.
This is a major threat to the oxygen cycle. Since
photosynthesis is the main source of oxygen, and
green plants photosynthesize, deforestation is greatly
reducing the rate of oxygen production.
