Crowned sifakas are critically endangered in the wild with numbers so low that exact figures are unknown. There are only approximately twenty crowned sifakas in zoos across the world, with infant mortality rates currently at 80%.
Like many other types of lemurs, Sifakas are in danger of extinction in the wild. These animals suffer from continued habitat loss, as their forest homes are logged for timber and turned into farmland.
Lemurs are a group of primates that are found in the wild only in Madagascar, the fourth largest island in the world. Without their competitive cousins, lemurs adapted to live in the varied habitats found in Madagascar.
