About This Project
The Sahamalaza sportive lemur is a rare primate endemic to Madagascar. With only 3000 individuals left in the wild it has been pronounced Critically Endangered by the IUCN. However, very little research on this species has been done so far. As populations vanish, so does our opportunity to study and help. This project is the first long-term study that will investigate their social system - important information for future conservation efforts.
