Lemurs of Madagascar
For the last 88 million years, life on Madagascar has been on its own – creating an island of evolutionary oddities and myriad diverse travel experiences. Sometimes referred to as a “Noah’s Ark” or the “eighth continent” due to its geographic isolation and high levels of endemism, the island is home to over 110 species of lemurs.
In this gallery we celebrate some of these lemurs:

About the photographer
ALISON BUTTIGIEG is a Maltese IT Consultant and self-taught Wildlife Photographer. She loves spending time in the wilderness, especially if it happens to be in Africa – the place she has been enamoured with ever since she set foot on the continent in 2005. The things she loves, even more, are the wild animals inhabiting the wilderness and photographing them. It is a privilege to have these small windows into the animals’ daily lives – a privilege that Alison feels is her duty to share with others through her photography.
