Ring-tailed lemurs are endangered. The gallery forests of Madagascar that they prefer are being converted to farmland, overgrazed, and harvested to make charcoal. These lemurs are also hunted for food in certain areas of their range. They are found in several protected areas in southern Madagascar, but the level of protection varies widely in these areas, offering only some populations protection from hunting and habitat loss.
