In September 2013 I was lucky enough to visit Madagascar with my partner Helen, on an "Exodus" holiday. There is so much more to Madagascar than its fantastic wildlife, but the purpose of this gallery is to feature just a handful of its animal residents, all of which occur in the wild only on Madagascar. Madagascar is a very poor country, which seems to be permanently in a state of political upheaval, and wildlife habitat is being destroyed at an alarming rate. I hope that our visit did a little to support the local economy and I'm crossing my fingers that the huge diversity of wildlife will still be around for visitors to see far into the future.
