Mad about Madagascar

It's a beautiful, magical island, trapped in time and containing more unique wildlife than you can imagine. It is also a fading, lost paradise. Only about 10% of its native habitat remains and although new species are still being discovered, we're at risk of losing them all.

Here is some of that wildlife:

Cuckoo-roller, Helmet Vanga
Ringtail Mongoose, Durrell's Vontsira
Fat-tailed Dwarf Lemur, Sucker-footed Bat
Lake Aloatra Bamboo Lemur, Long-eared Tenrec
Giant Jumping Rat, Red Fronted Lemur
Vasa Parrot, Crested Coua
Long-tailed Ground-Roller
