The Food and Agriculture Organization says millions could face famine in Madagascar without more funding to finish locust eradication efforts.By Madison Burke | January 27, 2015
Millions in Madagascar could face famine if more money isn't raised to finish eradicating a plague of locusts.
The country has been battling locusts since 2012. The Food and Agriculture Organization, or FAO, says $28.8 million has already been invested to halt the infestation, but it could all be for nothing if another $10.6 million is not raised to monitor and spray the locusts. (Video Via CBS)
