Madagascar Lemurs

The island of Madagascar is among the planet's top biodiversity hotspots, with tropical forests full of animals found nowhere else in the world. But this biological treasure trove is threatened with large-scale destruction by logging and other human activities. Summer Arrigo-Nelson will show us what she is learning about the impact of habitat destruction on the sifaka lemur, a long-legged leaper and arboreal acrobat.
