WHERE DO I LIVE ?
WHO AM I ?
"You will find me on the Island of Madagascar, I am an endemic animal of this country. I am part of the lemur family, as a matter of fact I am the biggest living species. I can measure up to 72 cm and 1,2m when my arms and legs are stretched. Living at the top of trees (the canopy) with my family, we only eat leaves, fruits and sometimes tree bark. In the morning, we scream and sing to mark our presence, our screams are so loud and powerful, you can hear it from 4 km around. We are in critical danger of being extinct because of the intensive deforestation and poaching.
The indri and the Sohisika tree are part of the TREEHUGGERS Collection, this collection accentuates the flora and the fauna. Trees and plants are just as endangered as animals, so let’s protect them !
The Sohisika tree is an endemic tree of the mid altitude savannah of Ankafobe Madagascar. This tree is critically endangered according to the REDLIST of the IUCN. All due to the logging, fires but more importantly the agricultural practices called « tavy » and « hatsake ». Those traditions consist of burning trees into cinders to fertilize the soil, with time it was proven untrue and that it was in fact impoverishing the ground."
