Synopsis:

Blood Brothers will be centred on the conservation problems of the most exclusive and threatened places in Africa, those where the species are not mainly endemic. Taking Madagascar as the main scenario for this episode, we will travel to ancient geological eras to understand the value of a different biology that emerges from the evolutionary independent laboratories. Fossilized coral barrier reefs, multinational conservation programmes, illegal traffic of species, genetic banks, lemurs and chameleon, fossas and new species just discovered by European zoological collectors will be some of the protagonist in this episode with the oddest fauna you can imagine; a fauna as exclusive as fragile and threatened.
