A friend of mine from the Madagascar research community, Erik Patel, is the star of this BBC series special on the plight of the beautiful Silky Sifaka (also known as the ‘Ghosts of the Forest’), found only in the forest of Marojejy, and narrated by the one and only David Attenborough. Please watch. It’s eye opening account and beautiful account of the complexity and conflicts facing the future of Madagascar and one of the top 25 most endangered primates. As Erik says, they are the heart and soul of this forest. How can we spend our lifetime not protecting it?
