Bristol Zoological Society


The Bristol Zoological Society is focused on research that advances our knowledge of the behaviour and ecology of threatened lemurs in the Sahamalaza region of Madagascar.

Ultimately, our aim is to use this knowledge to inform conservation management plans and species assessments for species such as the:

  • blue-eyed black lemur (Eulemur flavifrons),
  • Sahamalaza sportive lemur (Lepilemur sahamalazensis),
  • Sambirano mouse lemur (Microcebus sambiranensis), and
  • black lemurs (Eulemur macaco).

Our work includes engagement and collaboration with local NGOs, conservationists and stakeholders such as communities surrounding the remaining forest fragments in this region. In addition to research, we also support local conservation education programmes through community education initiatives, teacher training and salary support.
