Tampolo Marine Park. Photo by Rhett A. Butler
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.
Tampolo Marine Park is located on Madagascar’s famed Masoala Peninsula. Once a logging concession, the forest is now recovering and part of the protected area. The marine zone of the park has coral reefs, beaches, and giant boulders.
Antongil Bay is famous for its humpback whales, about 7,000 of which arrive each June or July to breed, calve, and nurse their young.
