- The pressures causing the quantitative and qualitative loss of habitat are reduced by 50% by the end of the project;
Habitat loss & degradation
- The state of knowledge of 3 species of lemurs is improved, as well as scientific research papers on lemur conservation species are published internationally.
This project is implemented by The Peregrine Fund.
