Adopt a lemur - lemur adoption as a gift


Adopt or sponsor a lemur

The Lemur is a curious looking animal, and one that not many people ever see as they are quite reclusive. 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. But you can sponsor or adopt a Lemur, through the Aspinall Foundation, quickly and easily online, and help protect them. _________________________________________
