Entry Description

90% of Madagascar’s forests have been destroyed through slash-and-burn. With the extreme loss of habitat, many of the native species (not found anywhere else in the world) are now endangered and face extinction. Pictured here are several types of wild lemurs. Researchers, scientists and Malagasy conservationists feel that raising awareness about this issue (both in Madagascar & abroad) is the key to saving these animals.
