The remarkable ring-tailed lemur has existed for 60 million years. But unless steps are taken now, it will soon be extinct. 80% of the forests of Madagascar, where the lemurs live, have been destroyed. 90% of lemur species have disappeared forever.

Dr. Lisa Gould first saw ring-tailed lemurs in 1984, and she immediately fell in love. Her passion took her to a remote research centre in southern Madagascar where she now lives, studying the lemurs' intriguing behaviour and matriarchal social structure.
