Ask A Lemur Researcher: Tomorrow, Thursday, March 29th, Lemur Love will host Dr. Giovanna Bonadonna on this special edition of 'Ask A Lemur Researcher'. Dr. Bonadonna will be there answering all your questions about the Indri - Madagascar's largest lemur! Make sure to follow their Facebook page to stay up to date!
The Northern White Rhino will soon be extinct. The terrible news of the passing of the last male Northern White Rhino, Sudan, came last week from the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. Sudan passed at the age of 45, survived only by his daughter Najin and granddaughter Fatu - the last two remaining of the species. Greed and corruption have claimed yet another beloved species. :(
Mark your calendars: More from Lemur Love (they're one of our favorite organizations!) - they'll be hosting their second annual Spring Charity Auction on April 10-12, 2018. We donated some bags to the auction and can't wait to participate.
Amazing wildlife photo of the week: National Geographic Photographer Frans Lanting snapped some incredible photos of Lana, a beautiful female bonobo. "Bonobos are our closest relatives on the great tree of life, along with chimpanzees."
Pearl Jam purchases carbon offsets to offset their estimated 2,500 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. The rock band has partnered with Conservation International to do their part being environmentally responsible on their Brazilian tour this month. What a great thing! I hope more public figures follow their lead and do their part.
