MAKI THE LEMUR FOUND

Thanks to SFPD and the SF Zoo and all of the concerned community who helped find Maki and bring him home.   As part of the Lipman Family Madagascar Center project team, we are proud to be on your side and grateful for your hard work and commitment to the cause of animal care and habit conservation for these endangered and special lemurs.   We look forward to the completion of the expanded and improved LFMC at SF Zoo’s opening day in 2021 that it is ready to help the conservation effort for more than one dozen different Madagascar species.  Maki and friends will love their home even more and ready to connect all us people-kind with their wonderful stories.
