Lemurs in Madagascar [electronic resource]: Surviving on an Island of Change

On the world's fourth-largest island, and virtually nowhere else, lives an entire "infraorder" of primates: the three dozen or so lemur species. But Madagascar has radically transformed since another primate - humans - arrived 2,000 years ago. Rampant deforestation, habitat fragmentation, and other anthropogenic factors are impacting lemurs much faster than evolution can mitigate the effects. This science bulletin follows American and Malagasy scientists through the country's remaining forests to learn how these compelling creatures are coping with change.

He may even encounter the elusive fossa along the way. Travel with this episode of Shane Untamed to find out if there really is anything about Madagascar to fear at all.

Madagascar, the Lost Makay [electronic resource]

In 2009, a group of young French scientists led by Evrard Wendenbaum, found themselves crossing a "time frontier" when moving deep forward into the canyons formed by the Makay mountain range, in the southwest of Madagascar. This natural barrier has been protecting many and unique ecosystems for millions of years. It is an incredibly lush vegetation that revealed itself to the astonished eyes of the explorers. In 2010, Evrard is back together with an international team of geologists, entomologists, biologists, naturalists, and anthropologists...from the US, France, Germany, Canada.
