Endangered species!

Did y’all ever watch Zoboomafoo? If you did, you should know that lemurs are dangling on the verge of extinction. Madagascar’s lemurs are now the most endangered  vertebrates  on the planet. There are 103 known lemur species and 91% of them are threatened. Scientists blame destruction of the tropical rain forests for the decline of the lemur’s condition. Political unrest has made poverty rates rise in Madagascar, which causes an intensification of illegal logging. Since Madagascar’s main attraction is its wildlife and forrests, the poverty will only get worse if the lemurs go extinct.
