My Conservation Work

World Lemur Day and World Lemur Festival

The World Lemur Festival was started by Dr. Jonah Ratsimbazafy of GERP Madagascar in 2014. The festival celebrates lemurs in cities and villages throughout Madagascar.

Since 2015, I have been promoting World Lemur Day and the World Lemur Festival worldwide through the Lemur Conservation Network (LCN). We encourage zoos, schools, parents, and lemur fans to celebrate by holding events and educational activities, and raising funds for lemur conservation.

I designed the logo from 2015 to 2018, and now manage freelance illustrators to create new graphics each year.
