@ Sanjay:Sadly it's the same story at all places where people and wildlife come together.

@ Wendy: They really are adorable, the picture in the tree was a lucky moment as it only took a few seconds.

Satellite imagery of Madagascar over the last few decades has revealed the full extent of habitat loss that the island has suffered. Fires, over-grazing by livestock, tree-cutting for charcoal production, and development have all contributed to the severe changes that this unique island has seen . The ring-tailed lemur is still hunted in many areas and individuals are trapped and kept as pets.

Very nice!
Tony, the system recognizes specific locations like zoos & aquariums but usually seems to only show a point on the map instead of listing the full details, so I usually give the location in the notes if it is important to the context of the spotting.

@alice, I did put the name of the zoo at the location but I don't see it no more. How can I change this?

Really fascinating pictures, but you need to identify where you saw them: in a zoo or park?
