Endangered – the Ring Tailed Lemur

The ring-tailed lemur is iconic because it’s the most recognizable kind of lemur. It’s black, gray and white tail make them pretty obvious to pick out.  It was an honor seeing them when I traveled to Madagascar, and they were one of my favorite things to photography while I was there. According to a new study by the University of Victoria in British Columbia and the University of Colorado Boulder in 2016, the number of ring-tailed lemurs is guessed to be around 2,500 in Madagascar, the only place where they exist. Here are some of my favorite shots. These lemurs were in Anja Reserve, a protected area in Madagascar.
