MK fund works closely with a huge network of professional lemur conservationists, both in Madagascar and internationally. As should be evident from the strategic plan developed by the scientists in 2013, we know what is needed to prevent lemur extinction.
“What is lacking is adequate funding to put the required actions into place, to deploy our cadre of professional conservationists, and to get the job done as quickly as possible. We have a very short window of time to accomplish this, perhaps to the end of this decade. But if current trends continue, we will lose this opportunity for many of the species in the Critically Endangered and Endangered categories. The time is now, and we need everyone who has ever been enchanted by these wonderful, unique creatures to join with us over the next five years to get the job done.” – Dr. Russel Mittermeier
