Conservation

Blue-eyed black lemurs are critically endangered in the wild due to habitat loss through ‘slash and burn’ agriculture and logging. They are also hunted, by humans, for meat or fur and trapped for the pet trade. The Zoological Society of East Anglia is actively involved in blue-eyed black lemur conservation through AEECL (The Lemur Conservation Association). This project has helped create a reserve for these lemurs in Madagascar and also set up research and education programmes. Find out more at www.aeecl.org
