Madagascar’s second-largest lemur, and arguably the most beautiful, the Diademed sifaka is critically endangered, threatened by mid-elevation rainforest destruction. Without suitable habitat, this peaceful vegetarian could disappear like a dozen or more other large lemur species did once this large island was colonized by humans. I pictured this animal isolated from its essential habitat, clinging to the last fruit from that disappearing forest. Madagascar is an evolutionary treasure trove of endemic species, and the survival of its incredible biodiversity is a challenge that the Malagasy people and the international conservation community must solve together.
