Indriids are found in Madagascar.

Indriids live in a wide range of environments, including original forests, disturbed forest fragments, and desert areas with spiny plants.

Indriids feed on fruit, leaves, bark, and flowers.

Six indriids are considered threatened due to loss of habitat occurring from deforestation (tree removal), fire, poaching, and encroaching human populations. The golden-crowned sifaka is considered Critically Endangered, or at an extremely high risk of extinction, dying out.
