Lemurs in Danger
Despite being an island nation with remarkable and diverse biological life, much of Madagascar’s wildlife teeters on the verge of extinction. Madagascar is the only country where lemurs can be found in the wild, but 90% of its 103 species of lemur are in danger of disappearing from Earth.
With the help of Holtzman Wildlife Foundation, Centre ValBio is translocating a male and two female Proplithecus verrauxi from Zombitze Reserve to Isalo National Park and translocating six critically endangered Prolemur simus from the forest near Karaianga Ivato to Ranomafana National Park.
The second project Holtzman Wildlife Foundation is supporting focuses on educating Malagasy children on the importance of lemur conservation through mass viewing of the IMAX movie, Island of Lemurs: Madagascar 3-6 times per year.
