On this #endangeredspeciesday we would like to highlight Ranomafana National Park’s 3 most endangered lemurs.
Greater Bamboo Lemur:
•The biggest of the bamboo lemurs, their population is declining rapidly due to a rapidly changing environment. This female Prolemur simus is said to be one of the last in Ranomafana National Park.
Golden Bamboo Lemur:
•With a heart shaped face how could you not love the Hapalemur aureus? This species has adapted to very high levels of cyanide. But as their habitat becomes more scarce so does the bamboo needed for their diets.
Black and White Ruffed Lemur:
•If you’ve ever heard a varecia call you may think these lemurs are much bigger than they actually are! Varecia are only around 3-4.5 kg but their communication skills speak volumes
Centre ValBio is happy to announce the birth of Voaharisoa Andriamahajery to proud parents Haja and Mahery!
