Lemur

Lemurs are primates solely native to Madagascar. There are about 100 existing species distributed in a range of habitats around the island, each with its own adaptations to climate, terrain and flora.

 

Because nearly 70% of the population of Madagascar live in poverty there are pressures on lemur numbers from deforestation, hunting for bush-meat and capture for the exotic pet trade.
