Leaping Lemurs!

Wild lemurs exist in only one place on earth — Madagascar. However, much of the lemur’s forest habitat has been destroyed to make room for human developments.

As a result, lemurs are now considered the most threatened group of vertebrates on the planet — 23 of the 103 species of lemur are classified as “critically endangered” on the IUCN Red List, and another 71 species are listed as either “endangered” or “vulnerable.”

Watch the video to have a look at what remains of the lemur habitat, and get a glimpse at these unique primates.
