Learn about Lemurs and Madagascar
Over 100 species of lemurs live in Madagascar, and nowhere else.
Because Madagascar is isolated, most of its fauna and flora is found nowhere else! Madagascar is full of unique landscapes, from limestone pinnacles called tsingy to lush rainforests, spiny deserts, and deep canyons.
Lemurs adapted to these unique landscapes, evolving into over 100 species across the island.
