Article Summary from Page 173

À Madagascar, la misère pousse les paysans à défricher les derniers refuges forestiers où vivent les lémuriens. Parce qu'il est urgent de lancer une action mondiale pour sauver ces primates qui témoignent encore aujourd'hui de la complexité de l'évolution des mammifères, la biologiste Alison Jolly s'attache à faire connaître et aimer ces espèces en péril. Quant au photographe Frans Lanting, il réalise ici l'un des plus beaux reportages de nature qu'il ait fait paraître dans GEO.
