Project objectives

This project aims to identify sufficient numbers of Ring-tailed Lemurs through census programmes in order to determine a secure source population and change their Red List Status . The community based projects will address habitat loss in the area, offering a way to preserve what is left of the Ring-tailed Lemur’s habitat.

This project is implemented by Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium.
