Photography Forum: "Madagascar: Bats and Bandits"

Join us for a presentation by photographer and Photo Forum member Nancy Donahoe titled "Madagascar: Bats and Bandits (oh, and some lemurs)." Located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Africa, Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world and one of the least developed countries. It attracts world-wide attention because 90 percent of its wildlife – including its celebrated and engaging lemurs – is found nowhere else on earth. Donahoe traveled to the country in November 2018. Her National Geographic tour was highlighted by the presence of Patricia Wright, the world’s foremost research scientist on lemurs. It was an arduous tour – very early mornings, heat and humidity, 4000-feet elevation, dense jungle hiking, challenging photo conditions, and long bus rides. But she experienced beautiful landscapes, fascinating villages and their people, and abundant wildlife up close and personal.
