Of over 100 lemur species, the Wild Place has 5 – ring-tailed, mongoose, red-bellied, white-belted ruffed and Alaotran gentle lemurs. All but the last live in a walk-through enclosure which means visitors can get incredibly close.
These primates are ridiculously photogenic, so it is almost impossible to take a bad picture. For World Lemur Day, the white-belted ruffed lemurs were hanging out in the trees whilst the ring-tails did a bit of yogic meditation in the sun.
World Lemur Day aims to raise awareness of the plight of lemurs that are in danger of extinction. It is part of a festival of lemur-related events promoted by the Lemur Conservation Network.
