From an email:
“Join fans of lemurs and conservation upstairs at Solly’s on U Street to benefit conservation efforts by the Duke Lemur Center in northeast Madagascar. Enjoy trivia (with one round dedicated to lemur facts!) and meet and mingle with fellow conservationists.
Solly’s will be donating 10% of upstairs bar sales to lemur conservation! And, a silent auction will benefit the Duke Lemur Center. Auction items up for grab include a lemur costume, lemur stuffed animals, home decor from Madagascar, and even a painting by a black and white ruffed lemur who lives at the Duke Lemur Center!
The World Lemur Festival is held each year at the end of October, with events around the world and in villages around Madagascar. During the festival, we celebrate lemurs and raise awareness about the need for their conservation.
Lemurs are among the most adorable primates on earth, but they are also very endangered. Over 90% of lemur species are endangered, with some species having less than 100 left in the world! But, all hope is not lost. Over 50 organizations from the Lemur Conservation Network are working in Madagascar with the Malagasy people to protect lemur habitat and save these species from extinction. We are making progress every day, but there is a lot of work to do. Join us to help save lemurs!
