Did you know? A new species of lemur has been discovered 😀 The 𝘔𝘪𝘤𝘳𝘰𝘤𝘦𝘣𝘶𝘴 jonahi is the new member of the Mouse lemur family and is one of the smallest lemurs in the world and found in the Mananara-Nord National Park community protected forests of Antsiradrano and Madera. We are currently at 113 endemic species in Madagascar. Hope after the update of the IUCN red list for endangered species.
🤝Thanks to the collaboration with international scientists, and to the several years of research. They unanimously decided to name it after 𝗣𝗿 𝗝𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗵 𝗥𝗮𝘁𝘀𝗶𝗺𝗯𝗮𝘇𝗮𝗳𝘆 (President of GERP, IPS, and one of the founders of Madagascar Lemurs Portal)
