Golden-crowned sifaka

Habitat loss means that the golden-crowned sifaka now has one of the smallest distributions of all lemur species. While this sifaka’s dry forest habitat was previously under threat from the logging industry and bush fires, the recent discovery of gold in the region has resulted in further swathes of forest disappearing to make way for the miners, who also hunt lemurs for food.
