RING-TAILED LEMUR

This beautiful drawing of a ring-tailed lemur exhibited in Where Did All the Animals Go? exhibition is accompanied by the following information:

Conservation Status: ENDANGERED

Population:  2,000 – 2,400 

BIOLOGY

The ring-tailed lemur is the most iconic of lemurs. Lemurs are primates and are only found on Madagascar

Ring-tailed lemurs are extremely ecologically flexible allowing this species to colonize a diverse range of habitats in southern, south-west, and south-central Madagascar including dry deciduous forests, spiny bush, brush and scrub, high-altitude ericoid bush and rocky outcrop vegetation. It encounters the most extreme climatic conditions on the island from the hottest and driest to the coldest. It has a varied diet and does not seem to be constrained by available water sources.

THREATS

Habitat loss and hunting are the greatest threats. The ring-tailed lemur has a strong preference for gallery forests and for Euphorbia bush, but these habitats are already restricted in southern Madagascar and continue to diminish due to annual burning practices that help create new pasture for livestock. Subsequent over-grazing and the felling of trees for charcoal production further impact wild populations. This species is also hunted as bushmeat and frequently kept as pets.

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.
