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.
