When Sue and Peter Christie decided to plan a ‘holiday of a lifetime’ to celebrate their retirements — Sue, as Chief Executive of the Northern Ireland Environment Link, and Peter as a government biologist — they chose one of the world’s most fascinating but least visited islands, Madagascar. Although five weeks is not long to explore the fourth largest island in the world, Sue and Peter still managed to visit 14 nature reserves, saw 31 species of lemurs, dozens of species of frogs and reptiles, all six endemic baobabs and countless other plants and animals. The challenges facing this beautiful land are many, and the solutions are not readily apparent. Join us at the Ulster Museum as Sue presents a pictorial tour of some of the most fascinating and unique animals and plants on the planet, and ponders on some thoughts for their future.
