95 percent of all lemur species could disappear from Earth if Madagascar doesn’t take action now.
Lemurs are only found on the east African island of Madagascar. If that country doesn’t take immediate action, nearly every species could be lost forever. More than 100 species of lemur qualify as critically endangered, endangered, or vulnerable to extinction in the wild.
From deforestation-driven habitat loss to illegal poaching and hunting for food, lemurs are under attack from all sides. But there is hope. The International Union for Conservation of Nature has a plan — it’s just up to the government of Madagascar to uphold the policies that protect these vulnerable creatures.
That’s where you come in.
We need to get as many signatures as we can on this petition to show Madagascar that the international community is watching. Please sign the petition if you care about saving lemurs.

P.S. Together we can convince Madagascar to take serious action and change policy to bring lemurs back from the brink.
