1982

In 1982, the DLC imported 8 wild caught mongoose lemurs from the Comoros islands, an archipelago of volcanic islands in the Mozambique Channel northwest of Madagascar, and the only place natural populations of lemurs can be found outside Madagascar. These wild caught founders have done well, and form the foundation of the current thriving North American population of 62 animals.
