90% of all lemur species likely to be extinct in 20-25 years.
According to a news report in The Telegraph, the IUCN claims that 90% of all lemur species could be extinct in 20 to 25 years unless a 3-year, $7.6 million program to help local communities in Madagascar gets underway immediately. (I'd donate if I had a job!) I'm doing what I can on my end by trying to get this news blurb mentioned on the main page of Wikipedia. Keep an eye out for it and pass the news along.
