DIADEMED SIFAKA

This vibrant drawing of a diademed sifaka exhibited in Where Did All the Animals Go? exhibition is accompanied by the following information:

DIADEMED SIFAKA

Conservation Status: CRITICALLY ENDANGERED

Population:  6,000 – 10,000 

BIOLOGY

The diademed sifaka is a type of lemur, with beautiful markings and large eyes and also one of the largest species of lemur

Diademed sifakas are found in the eastern rainforests of Madagascar. Their diet consists mainly of ripe fruits, seeds, flowers, and young leaves. Diademed sifakas 

THREATS

Rain forest habitat loss in eastern Madagascar due to slash-and-burn agricultural practices and timber extraction is the principal threat to this sifaka’s survival, although hunting as bushmeat also can have a very serious impact on remaining populations, even within existing protected areas. Furthermore, illegal rum production, necessitating the planting of sugar cane fields and destructive utilization of sifaka food trees, is also a threat to populations.

EXHIBITION & CONFERENCE

'Where Did All the Animals Go?' An Exhibition of North East School Children’s Biro Drawings Working with Artist, Jane Lee McCracken featuring Biro drawings of some of the world’s most endangered species, at Thought Foundation Art Gallery 20 June - 22 July 2019. Jane worked with over 400 children visiting five schools across the region to deliver Biro drawing workshops. Both exhibition and the Endangered Species Conference, also organised by Jane, are supported by international wildlife charity Born Free, with President and Co-Founder Will Travers, OBE headlining the conference. Included in the exhibition is a selection of Jane’s Biro drawings, which explore loss to the environment, generated by human destruction.

Both exhibition and conference call for wider awareness and compassion for wildlife affected by human destruction, and the subsequent impact of wildlife depletion on humanity if we don’t act now. These events, which also include workshops and film screenings during the exhibition, reveal the facts as to why and how species are threatened and provide access to vital knowledge as well as concise, key actions each one of us can take, so we can make positive changes for wildlife, both locally and globally.
