Madagascar Wildlife

Animals, lizards, and birds, Oh My!

Madagascar is a mysterious place. There is not much mention of this small island nation in the news, even though they recently experienced a governmental coup and about 90% of the population lives on less than $2 a day (that is a whole other story that I will dedicate to a future post).

Putting the political and economic aspect of Madagascar aside for the moment, let us focus on the wildlife!Β These are the beautiful photographs of Madagascar’s endemic species by Will Burrard-Lucas.

Will is a UK based wildlife photographer who has invented his own camera, called the BeetleCam, to get up close and personal with wildlife. Amazing! According to his bio he is also involved with conservation organizations around the world – using his photography to help raise funds. You can see more of his photography here.
