Primates of the Caribbean Gardens
 
This island houses a pair of brown lemurs. They are closely related to the red-fronted and white-fronted lemurs. Although listed as endangered, this species is one of the more heavily hunted lemurs. They are commonly used as a food source. The practice of eating wild animals is known as "bushmeat." This topic was first mentioned in 1995 at the zoo and is becoming more and more of an issue in Madagascar as well as across Africa and other regions. If you'd like to help out, please sign the petition at the Primate Expedition Cruise dock or click over to the Bushmeat Crisis Task Force.
