Megadroughts Plus Humans Killed Giant Wildlife in Madagascar

Health Editor’s Note: Humans of Madagascar were the straw that broke the elephant bird’s back. Giant lemurs and tortoises, dwarf hippos, the elephant bird went extinct 1,500 years ago. Madagascar had survived megadroughts but during this latest time humans were there and with humans came habitat destruction, overhunting, disease, fire and agriculture and these stressors plus megadroughts lasting decades, the giant wildlife could not survive and became extinct…..Carol
