We currently have five species of lemur at the Wildheart Animal Sanctuary
Lemurs are only found in Madagascar where an astonishing variety can be found, though, sadly, all species are in decline.
We are proud to demonstrate our dedication to the preservation of animal species and the education of our visitors in two main ways. Firstly by sending funds to support a charity in Madagascar itself (the MFG) for conservation work there and, secondly, by being involved here, under strict global protocols, with breeding programmes.
Did you know…? Females are dominant in nearly all species of lemur.
No one knows quite how many species of lemur there are. There are lots of disagreements amongst scientists! Lemurs are not monkeys, although they do share a common ancestor. Lemurs are classed as prosimians. If you love lemurs, why not enjoy their company up close by pre-booking one of our amazing Lemur Experiences?
