Seventy-four wildlife cameras (“camera traps”) were recently installed in Anjanaharibe-Sud Special Reserve (Marojejy’s sister park to the south) as part of a study to gain a better understanding of the wildlife populations in the area.  The study is focused primarily on the highly endangered Silky Sifaka population, but the cameras will be invaluable for recording movements of the many other species of lemurs, carnivores and birds in the area.  Here are a few articles on Patrick Ross’s fascinating study:

Thanks to all the people and entities involved.  We look forward to seeing the results!
