A Tale of Two Lemurs

October 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Red Clay Brewing Company, Oct. 24 from 6 – 8 p.m.
Join Dr. Sarah Zohdy for 'A Tale of Two Lemurs: Stories of the Fascinating Ecology & Evolution of the World's Most Endangered Mammals.' 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.

Dr. Zohdy, who has spent over a decade studying these fascinating and adorable creatures, will share 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.

Wild Science is a talk series featuring scientists who conduct research to answer questions about the natural world. Featured once a month at Red Clay Brewing Company, come learn exciting facts about nature in Alabama and beyond!

Presented by Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences Wildlife Graduate Student Club.
