Look up, way up! Discover three incredible leaping species of lemur at the Calgary Zoo - red-fronted, ring-tailed and black-and-white ruffed. A glimpse of these incredible primates is enough to understand why conserving them is so important.

All wild lemurs can only be found in Madagascar, which has lost over 80% of its original forest- bad news for this tree dwelling species. We work to conserve these lemurs in Madagascar and here at home. 

Land of Lemurs habitat has an immersive outdoor loop that is seasonal. It is currently closed for the winter/ low season. During evenings and winter months, the lemurs are housed in a heated building that can be viewed from exterior windows in Land of Lemurs.
