The film highlights the tireless efforts of trailblazing scientist Dr. Patricia C. Wright and her lifelong mission to help these strange and adorable creatures survive in the modern world. Among the lemurs audiences will meet are the extremely rare greater bamboo lemur; the smallest primate in the world, the mouse lemur; the well-known ring-tailed lemur; and the delightful dancing sifaka lemur.

“We hope ‘Island of Lemurs: Madagascar’ will show people all over the world how special lemurs are, and how worthy they are of our admiration and protection,” said film writer and producer, Drew Fellman.

“We’re very excited to show ‘Island of Lemurs: Madagascar’ here on the Giant Dome screen,” said Steve Snyder, CEO of the Fleet Science Center. “Lemurs are amazing animals, and the themes of conservation and evolutionary biology are relevant to science learning today.”

“Island of Lemurs: Madagascar” opens at the Fleet Science Center on Aug. 4, with multiple shows daily. The documentary is rated G. For more information on “Island of Lemurs: Madagascar,” including show times, visit: bit.ly/2v9rXxg.
