World Lemur Day is an annual celebration held on the last Friday of October. The day is dedicated to raising awareness about the lemurs of Madagascar, which are among the most threatened primates in the world.
Lemurs are a unique group of primates that are found only on the island of Madagascar. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes, with over 100 known species ranging from the tiny mouse lemur to the large and charismatic Indri. Unfortunately, many species of lemurs are threatened with extinction due to habitat loss, hunting, and other human activities.
World Lemur Day was created to raise awareness about the importance of lemurs and their conservation. The day is celebrated around the world with a variety of events and activities, including lemur-themed festivals, educational programs, and fundraising campaigns.
On World Lemur Day, people may choose to celebrate by learning more about lemurs and their conservation, supporting conservation efforts through donations or volunteer work, or simply spreading the word about the importance of protecting these unique primates.
World Lemur Day provides an important opportunity to celebrate and protect the lemurs of Madagascar, which are among the most unique and important species on our planet.
