2:30pm Training session and Q&A session
Trust through training allows keepers to touch the red-ruffed lemurs for exams, treat wounds, and administer vaccinations and other injections. The lemurs also voluntarily enter a transport crate and close the door on their own for trips to the veterinary hospital for check-ups.
This species is cooperatively managed as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Species Survival Plan program program. This program is responsible for developing a Breeding and Transfer Plan for each species in the program.
