Installment 17

26 June 2020

Golden-crowned Sifaka is a critically endangered lemur that is endemic to a small corner of northern Madagascar.

Today is Madagascar's independence day! Unfortunately, though we're free from France, we haven't yet shaken the virus. It's likely that we'll commemorate independence with the 2000th documented case of the virus. Here in Diego, where I live, things remain calm, and the hospitals are empty. So far we have been saved by our geographical isolation, both from the world, and even from the rest of the island.
