The endangered Golden-headed Lion Tamarin is found only in lowland and premontane tropical forest fragments in Bahia, Brazil. Deforestation due to farming, mining and urban expansion is the main cause of its dramatic decline. This gentle, gregarious primate is a Flagship species for the South American, Atlantic Forest, its ecosystem and its many endemic plants and animals.

Emerging artist, Clare Payne, focuses her work on wildlife and natural history, which usually features marine and coastal species. She works in a variety of media, predominantly acrylic, watercolour and pencil. Based in Port Erin on the Isle of Man, Payne is influenced by her BSc Zoology honours and her former career in Marine Ecology, and is committed to the promotion of conservation through her work.
