Lemurs, native to Madagascar, make up the majority of the endangered primate list. Their biggest threat is deforestation; captured here is a Sifaka Lemur clinging to a tree. Madagascar has an incredibly unique ecology and lemurs, as well as many other plants and animal species, are endemic to the island.

Location: Durham, North Carolina
