When primatologist Patricia Chapple Wright first visited Madagascar, she discovered the golden bamboo lemur, so-called because of the golden fur on its head and belly and a habit of eating cyanide-laced bamboo shoots. At the time of her discovery, Dr. Wright learned the lemur's rain forest habitat was on the verge of being chopped down. To save the lemurs, she lobbied the Malagasy government—as well as conservationists around the world. Her efforts led to the creation of Ranomafana National Park. It’s there that Dr. Wright has done the bulk of her scientific research over the last three decades, studying the social and family behaviors of wild lemurs, and advocating for the preservation of Madagascar’s endangered wildlife.
