Conservation

The ring-tailed lemur is threatened in the wild by deforestation due to charcoal production and burning for pasture. It is also hunted for food and the illegal pet trade. Ring-tailed lemurs are part of a successful European Studbook Breeding Programme and more than 25 young have been born here at the park.
