“Almost every species of lemur, wide-eyed primates unique to Madagascar, is under threat of extinction.

That is the conclusion of an international group of conservationists, who carried out an assessment of the animals’ status.

This “Primate Specialist Group” reviewed and compared the latest research into lemur populations and the threats to their habitat and survival.

Lemurs, they concluded, are the most endangered primates in the world.”

The vast majority of lemur species, unique primates found only in Madagascar, are on the brink of extinction, say scientists.
