Description:

Lemurs & Madagascar with Dr. Eric Miller

With its collection of unique creatures and flora, Madagascar has been nicknamed the "eighth continent." The Madagascar Fauna and Flora Group has reintroduced lemurs to the wild, cares for animals rescued from illegal wildlife trade, trains farmers how to get better crops, replants forests, and educates rural children. The MFG also reintroduced three groups of endangered black and white lemurs to the forest to enhance the genetic pool.

Come hear what's happening in their two main project areas and see the great work being accomplished.

Gather by the lemurs and fosa for an informal mixer from 6 to 6:45 p.m. in the gardens followed by his presentation and Q&A in the Safari Canyon open-air theater from 7 until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors.
