LEMURS - Florida Reserve Aims to Save Endangered Lemurs

This VOA News article talks about The Lemur Conservation Foundation located in Florida, and the work they are doing to help understand and protect the lemurs...
Deep in the west Florida wilderness, one hears the sounds of the jungle. If lemurs seem out of place in Florida, it is because they are. Lemurs are native to Madagascar, in the Indian Ocean.

This isolated patch of Florida forest is home to the Lemur Conservation Foundation, one of the few lemur reserves in the world. The reserve opened three years ago, and there are 30 lemurs here.
The report also includes a video version in dial-up and broadband sizes.
