World Lemur Day

October 21, 2017 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Hosted by the Greater Sac chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers

Did you know that lemurs are only found on the island of Madagascar and are the most endangered mammals in the world? If habitat destruction and the illegal pet trade continue at their current rates, 90% of the 100+ lemur species face extinction in the next 20 years.

Come celebrate World Lemur Day to meet the spunky lemurs of the world, including the Sacramento Zoo’s Black and White Ruffed Lemurs, Mongoose Lemurs, and Coquerel’s Sifakas! Grab your family and friends to take part in interactive crafts, educational activities, and fun raffles to learn all about lemurs and how you can help save the lemur population from extinction.

All proceeds benefit lemur conservation.
