White-Fronted Brown Lemur

/White-Fronted Brown Lemur

Found in the moist lowland and monane rainforest. Brown Lemurs are tree dwelling and spend most of their time in the upper layers of the forest. Restricted to north-eastern Madgascar. Destruction of the rainforest in north-eastern Madagscar by slash-and-burn agriculture is the primary threat to the White-fronted Lemur. Hunting and trapping for food or the pet trade also pose a significant threat to this Lemur in many parts of its range.
