ring tailed lemurs down to 2,500

3 posts in this topic

things are in serious trouble in Madagascar with 12 sites which have 30 or less lemurs and 15 sites where lemurs have become locally absent or are very likely to become so soon


the term homo sapiens means wise , well there are enough messing thing up , and others just letting it happen to question the appropriateness of this term

In July, 2015 I was taken by my highest supervisor and his wife to a “tiger park” located outside of Changchun, Jilin province.


There was a large cage of coarse black mesh in which numerous Lemur catta, Ring-tailed Lemurs, were confined.


Squirt guns were on offer for shooting jets of water at the defenseless lemurs.


The idle amusement of the “tiger park” clientele was the top priority, rather than the care of the lemurs.


Reading your post about their endangered status in the wild adds to my sense of dismay.


Thank you for posting this.
