Sanctuaries are the only hope for some of these animals with Govts protecting them as a top priority. They are priceless.

Not good enough these Governments have a responsibility not just to the humans in its domain but the animals. Time to protect the lemurs and their habitat. The time to act is Now. Every specie on the Planet is here for a reason and a purpose and humans are meant to be caretakers of Planet Earth not destroyers.

If extinction is inevitable, then we must do what we can to "store" the species until such time as the climate and other conditions are amenable for their return to the wild. We must keep them alive in zoos, and we must begin collecting as many dna samples as possible. Someday, we may be able to return them to their proper home.
