Save the Lemur - The Petition Site

Tuesday, 19 May 2009

Save the Lemur - The Petition Site: "Since the mid 1980's, mining, logging, and deforestation toward economic development has devastated the habitat of Lemur, and other large and small endangered species of mammel indigenous and unique to Madagascar.
This petition is to plead with the Malagasy government to create or assign a committee for responsible growth and development before these endangered animals become extinct.
Out of the fifty different kinds of lemurs, ten of those types are critically endangered, seven are endangered, and nineteen are considered vulnerable.

Conservation & Ecology: Lemurs play an important role in the ecology of Madagascar and the Comores Islands, because they disperse seeds from the fruit they eat. These seeds can then grow into new plants, which is important because the forests of Madagascar are being destroyed at a very high rate. "
