I’ve just finished my most recent illustration, a poster which shows the wildlife of Anjanaharibe-Sud Special Reserve in Madagascar, a mountainous reserve in the north of the island with truly exceptional wildlife. My posters will be used around the park and in local schools. The poster was commissioned by Duke Lemur Center and the Lemur Conservation Foundation.
The key species in my poster illustration are the dark Indri lemur, featured on the left hand side, and the white Silky Sifaka lemurs, on the right hand side. Lemurs are endemic to Madagascar, which means they are only found there and nowhere else on Earth. Indri are the largest surviving lemur species, and these dark indri are even rarer than the more common black and white form, being found only in the north of the island. All lemur species, are endangered through loss of habitat. Indri lemurs do not survive in captivity, so it really is vital to save the last remaining intact forests of Madagascar where they live.
