Find out all about lemurs and other Madagascar animals at the Lemur Spotlight on Species. Meet the keepers at the Zoo who care for lemurs every day. There will also be face-painting and fun ‘lemur’ activities for the whole family. This three-day event is August 31st – September 2 in the Wortham World of Primates.
While learning about lemurs, you can also support lemur conservation. Keepers will be selling a wide variety of unique items as well as paintings completed by our zoo animals. All of the profits will support conservation efforts in Madagascar.
