The Lemur is a curious looking animal, and one that not many people ever see as they are quite reclusive. This hasn't prevented it from becoming vulnerable to extinction. In is on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

In the last 30 years its population in the wild has decreased by 30%, due mainly to the compromise of its natural habitat by expanding towns and farms in its homeland of Madagascar. Local tribes people also hunt the Lemur as a popular food item.

But you can adopt or sponsor an animal through the WWF quickly and easily online, and help protect them.
