Maky Telo

Ring-tailed lemurs (known as Maky in Malagasi) are among the most iconic of Madagascar’s unique creatures. Though charming in the daylight, their first encounter with European explorers in the 16th century were as haunting howls in the darkness and beady eyes reflecting the flickering campfires. The name lemur therefore comes from Latin Lemures meaning ‘spirits of the dead’! Lemurs are vital to the rich ecosystem of Madagascar as spreaders of seeds throughout the forest. Due to habitat loss, hunting and live capture for the pet trade Ring-tailed lemurs are one of the 73 (out of 113) species of lemur classified as Endangered or Critical. 50% of profits from print sales will be donated to the WWF.
