Mating Lion Tailed Macaques 
The striking lion-tailed macaque is one of the smallest and most endangered of the macaque species of monkey. They are endemic to the Western Ghats in Southern India. 
Their numbers in the wild are extremely low. There count stands at not more than 4000 individuals left. A study indicates that amongst everything like habitat loss, human intervention, etc, their reproductive biology has also made it a challenge for their numbers to rise. 
The reason being the females are sexually mature only after they are 5 years old and the males after they are 8 years old. So any efforts put in trying to protect them is going to take us a good decade to seeing results. Long term persuasion towards protection is the only hope for this species. 
It takes a plant to grow to a tree not just to yield the sweetest of fruits but also protect it. 
Dedication is the key ingredient to success - Sanket Reddy

One of the fun things I added as a backer reward for one of my @FaunaFruits tiers during the Kickstarter was a #rendering of any #fruit and #animal the backer chose! This is a fusion of #persimmon and #monkey aka a #persimmion. My backer came up with it before I could, and I love the name lol. #animal #illustration #shopsmallbusiness #bookillustrator #liontailedmacaque #monkies #popcultureart

This past week we have had much disconcerting news. First the severity of Delhi's air pollution, and then the findings of a WWF global report, concluding that human beings have decimated over 60 percent of all wild animals since 1970!.

A rather sobering run-up to our Diwali celebrations, you will agree. Surely there is a different way of doing this!

We leave you with the image of the beautiful lion-tailed macaque, which until recently had been on IUCN's list of the 25 most endangered primates of the world. Conscious human effort has now ensured healthier numbers of these shy natives of the Western Ghats. So this Diwali let fun not get in the way of caring for life around you.
