What an amazing experience! My kids and I had such a blast on our lemur meet and greet. We enjoyed meeting Emerald and learning about her. This was the perfect gift for my daughter's birthday.

Conservation Corner: Red-Ruffed Lemur

Lemurs are critically endangered and their biggest threat is habitat loss. The best way to help lemurs from here in Kansas is to support conservation organizations like Lemur Love. Lemur Love is a group of female scientists who work to survey lemur populations and educate locals in Madagascar on how to make a sustainable living in the rainforest of Madagascar. In addition by supporting the park today you’re helping to support our breeding program here which will help maintain a viable genetic population of animals in zoos. Lastly, support pollinators like Emerald here in the United States by planting a pollinator garden.
