Madagascar is off the coast of southeast Africa. It is the fourth largest island in the world, and is like nowhere else on earth, both naturally and culturally. In fall 2011, Lee and Ron Davis spent 16 days photographing the island’s wildlife. To sample the wildlife in so short a period, the two naturalists hiked through carefully selected examples of Madagascar’s rainforests, semi-arid woodlands, and arid spiny forests, in each case led by an expert local guide. The presentation will describe the broad aspects of the island’s unique natural and cultural history, and will be illustrated by Ron’s outstanding photos.
