We like to move it!

Everyone’s heard of the lemurs in the Madagascar films but in reality lemurs are one of the most endangered primates and Madagascar is the only country they live in. I became interested in this species during my degree and signed up for the frontier project after I finished as they are one of the only organisations that have an established lemur conservation project. I was based at the beach camp, with the people who do marine conservation so it was a great atmosphere.
On an average working day we’d monitor lemur populations, observe behaviour and check the nesting boxes that the project has built as part of the lemur program. There’s also lots of other wildlife if you want to diversify, and it’s possible to do fun dives with the marine volunteers too.
