Episode 205 of National Geographic's Wild Chronicles features the discovery of and subsequent research on a new species of Sifaka lemur discovered deep in the eastern rainforest of Madagascar . Aired on PBS and distributed nationally by WLIW New York, this segment features both video and still images by photographer Connie Bransilver www.ConnieBransilver.com of the work to identify, understand, and ultimately save this amazingly beautiful new species.

Bransilver has photographed in Madagascar for over 15 years and in the course of that work with the Duke University Lemur Center and with National Geographic, she and Dr. Ken Glander, then Director of the Center, discovered the new species. Since the discovery in 1999, Dr. Mitchell Irwin and his team have studied the animal, its habitat and have made a significant positive impact on the sparse human population of the area. Bransilver and the Glander and Irwin team, working collaboratively with several major organizations, and with World Bank funding, expect to have the whole region declared a national park/preservation area by President Ravalomanana within the year. Bransilver has photographed all phases of this study since its discovery, and with Bransilver as Field Producer, National Geographic's Wild Chronicles will present some of this work.

Connie has led photo expeditions in other parts of the world, but this is the first where she will share her love of her favorite place in the world, her beloved Madagascar .
