Very sadly noted. I do hope lemurs will survive with the precious help and support of scientists and animal lovers as well.

Several of these animals need to be transported to another country to reproduce - if need be, in a zoo, and returned. A species simply cannot die out because of environmental issues; unlike those who are hunted.
