February 12, 2013 — The DLC SAVA Conservation initiative is working through a variety of activities with local communities to protect forests and lemurs in Madagascar. Photographer and conservationist Louise Jasper has helped us to develop a poster which speaks out against the hunting of lemurs and the keeping of lemurs as pets. The posters will be distributed to schools and posted in other central gathering points in the SAVA region.
Translated, the poster says:
We inherited from our ancestors a healthy forest complete with all the lemurs, birds and other animals that live there.
Should it not remain undisturbed for our children?
The magnificent and unique animals of Madagascar should not be eaten, and should not be kept as pets in your house.
Thanks, Louise, for your help in creating the poster!
