Blue-eyed lemur’s description
Like men, I am one of the rare primates to have blue eyes. Males are very easy to distinguish from females : the males fur is perfectly black, while the females one is brown-red.
Less than 1000
Close to extinction
About 40 cm
Where do I live ?
I live in the tropical forest, in the North-West of Madagascar.
Which threats ?
In Madagascar, deforestation is a major scale phenomenon. It is the main threat weighing on me : Destroying my habitat is not the least, it divides populations and impedes my breeding.
Kiwiwho’s word to save the blue-eyed lemur
Since 2008, I belong to the 25 most endangered primates species in the world. To save me, Deforestation must absolutely be stopped and local populations must be sensitized.
