Aye-Aye Captain: A Primatologist's Tales of Lemurs in Madagascar
Dr. Sarah Zohdy, Emory University
Sunday, May 4 at 4pm
The island of Madagascar is home to some of the strangest animals on the planet. Perhaps some of the most well-known residents are lemurs, small primates only found on the island.
Join Dr. Zohdy, who has spent nearly a decade studying these fascinating and adorable creatures, to hear first-hand tales of the smallest primate in the world (the mouse lemur), the most endangered in the world (the greater bamboo lemur), and what is possibly the oddest looking creature on the planet (the aye-aye). Find out about Madagascar’s complex biodiversity and how conservation efforts are making a difference for lemurs and other island residents.
Presented in conjunction with the film Island of Lemurs: Madagascar, now showing in Fernbank’s IMAX® Theatre.
Cost: Lecture is free and reservations required at 404.929.6400. Tickets for Island of Lemurs: Madagascar and/or Museum admission must be purchased separately. Lecture-only guests will be seated at 3:45pm. Lecture is suitable for ages 10 and up.
This lecture is made possible by a generous gift from Marty and John Gillin in honor of Carter and Hampton Morris.
