The Ring-tailed Lemur is distributed in a variety of forest types in the south of Madagascar. See the distribution map at IUCN.

It is classified as Endangered and it is believed that less than 2,000 individuals survive in the wild, a shocking 95% decrease since the year 2000. The main causes are habitat loss, the pet trade and illegal hunting for bush meat. See this article in Scientific American.
