Discover Madagascar

Please note, our lemur walkthrough is operated by Wild Place volunteers and is open at different times daily, depending on the availability of volunteers. Please check the welcome board on arrival for the latest updates.

Discover Madagascar in an interactive, immersive conservation exhibit, home to our lemurs and pygmy goats.

Start by exploring a small Madagascan village, where you can look out for the sights and smells including a vanilla pod. Then enter the lemur walkthrough, where you can get up-close to our mongoose lemurs, ring-tailed lemurs, white-belted ruffed lemurs and our Alaotran gentle lemurs. 

Madagascar is the only place that lemurs can be found in the wild. It's an extremely poor country with over 92% of people living below the poverty line. Local people are being forced to turn to unsustainable practices to make a living, which in turn is threatening the lemurs’ habitats.

As a result, many lemur species are threatened with extinction. We are working to help safeguard three specific species; the blue-eyed black lemur, the Sahamalaza sportive lemur and the Sambirano mouse lemur.

You can read more about the work we are doing here.

Our keepers Joe and Zoe visited Madagascar in 2015, if you see them on the site make sure you ask them any questions you have!

You can also learn more about the conservation work we are doing in our keeper talks. Check out the ‘What’s On’ board on your arrival for lemur talk times. 

Did you know we also offer a 'Feed the Lemurs' experience, perfect for animal lovers? Find out more here.
