Lemurs

The lemurs are a family of primates that only live on Madagascar and nearby islands. In recent years I have been to the Apenheul many times and have photographed all the leur species they have. There are 8 species in the Apenheul. 5 of them roam free in the park. 3 types are behind glass. The most endangered of them is the blue-eyed lemur. The lemurs are in trouble at Madegascar because humans are massively destroying the habitat. They also hunt for the meat and the animal is traded as a pet. So sad!

I’m sharing a collection of photos that I have taken in the Apenheul in recent years. The 8 species are there. This year I bought a subscription for 2018. I’ll make a lot more photos. I cann’t wait til my next visit!
