Lemur Colony Update: Watch LCF’s Tree Platform Installation

LCF and Canopy Quest constructed two tree platforms in our forest canopy. The platforms will help researchers and staff observe lemur behavior and activity. Many lemurs spend most of their lives in the forest canopy. Would you like to know what it is like to sit in our tree platforms?
