New Land of Lemurs Exhibit Opens July 5th, 2017
Come visit the lemurs this summer and see what lemurs do best: play, groom, leap between trees, search for leaves and shoots to eat and soak up the sun!
Land of Lemurs is home to black-and-white ruffed lemurs and ring-tailed lemurs, two of the world’s most endangered primates. The open concept allows visitors to become immersed in the lemurs’ world, engage with interpretive programs, and leave with simple actions they can take to help protect wildlife!
The Calgary Zoo is committed to wildlife conservation around the globe. Together with the University of Calgary and the Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership we are currently developing conservation programs in Madagascar to help both lemurs and local communities thrive. Your membership purchase helps make conservation efforts like this possible.
Rainforests and Savannahs
Africa is a land of extremes. Humid rainforests are home to an incredible diversity of life – thousands plant species come together to create an environment where mammals, birds, insects and amphibians thrive. In the hot, arid grasslands of the savannah, trees are sparse and the hot season never seems to end.
