When a black back(young sliver back) comes to sit down 10 feet in front of you... what do you do!?!? Did you know that the largest threat gorillas face is habitat loss? This primarily due to local farmers and families running out of agricultural land in the mountainous areas which the gorillas live in. People are starting to realize the value of conservation and protecting these amazing apes, but there is still A LOT of work to be done.
Their numbers have increased in recent years, some surveys show, but they still face a very uncertain future. .

A Greater Bamboo Lemur searches for its next meal in forests of Eastern Madagascar. Due to their shrinking habitats, and unique requirement of a bamboo diet, Bamboo lemurs are becoming increasingly rare. Being endemic to Madagascar, their only hope for survival is to curb deforestation and improve conservation efforts both locally and globally. .

A young southern white Rhino cautiously watches me in the safari vehicle as I lean out for a photo. Rhinos have very poor eyesight and are usually rather skittish because of that. Although they do no typically have too many predators, they are always on alert - especially when there are young around who are more susceptible to becoming prey.
Thanks to all who working to save these incredible animals. No one needs a rhino horn but a rhino! .

Did you know that a grown Orangutan has the same intellect as a 6 year old child? They feel compassion, love, happiness and distress the same way we do. Not only do they share 97% of their DNA with humans but they also have a gestation period of 8.5 months and can live to over 60 years of age!! .
The biggest threat they face is from deforestation due to palm oil plantations. Visit www.orangutans.ca to find out more about these amazing and critically endangered great apes. .

Happy EarthDay!!! What are you doing to make a difference this year?!?! How better to spend your Earth Day weekend than with this lovely, kind, inspirational and caring lady. Dr. Jane Goodall. We are all beyond thankful for what you have done for Chimpanzees, Africa and people and wildlife all over the world!!! “Change happens by listening and then starting a dialogue with the people who are doing something you don't believe is right.” Dr Jane Goodall - said it best. It is time to change out the way we live, change the way we think and change the way feel, particularly about Mother Earth and how we are treating her. .

A Perinet Chameleon, also know as the Malagasy Side-striped Chameleon, is another endemic species to Madagascar. Small than other species of side striped chameleons, this one only grows up to 15-20cm. This particular one is a bit shorter but looks even smaller as it’s tail is curled up to keep warm during the cool damp night in the mountainous rainforest of Ranomafana National Park. .

A Northern Sumatran Leaf Monkey rests on a branch high up in the Leusur National Park. Leaf Monkeys typically feed in young leaves, but also eat a variety or fruits, flowers and even snails from time to time.
They spend most of their time in the trees, but do come down to the ground to feed daily - where they are on the look out for predators like the Sumatran Tiger!! Their survival depends on the conservation of the Leuser Ecosystem which is under great threat due to deforestation for palm oil plantations. #palmoil .

A Diademed Sifaka curiously looks at me as a do my best to go unnoticed while observing the small group of lemurs as they interact with one another in the tree tops. .
