For the month of December, I'll be posting some of my favorite pictures from 2012. All of these photos were taken during the course of my reporting travels.

Home to rainforests, coral reefs, and rich marine life in the Bay of Antongil, Madagascar's Masoala Peninsula is one of the most biodiverse places on earth. This picture shows a forest stream within Masoala National Park.

In 2009 and 2010, Masoala was heavily affected by illegal logging for rosewood and ebony. My trip to Madagascar this year was in part to do an update on the logging situation in the region.
