Species Conservation. Not only is actor Henry Cavill a brilliant Superman (‘Man of Steel’ by Zack Snyder) and an Immortal (‘Immortals’ by Tarsem Singh) but a concerned ambassador for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.
Last October, we saw him saying farewell to Gina, the orangutan at Durrell Wildlife, and now he continues his charity work to save the rare species of animals. Because elephants, gorillas, tortoises, and other animals are in the spotlight today.
Don’t you love lemurs? They are incredible! Remember that the word “lemur” means ghost or spirit. The name comes from Roman mythology due to its nocturnal habits and slow pace. Lemur was first used to describe a slender loris and later, it was applied to the primates on Madagascar.
Peculiar animals, often confused with ancestral primates. However, lemurs just share morphological and behavioral traits with basal primates.
Today, enjoy this video: ‘When Henry Cavill met lemurs.’ Nice!
In fact, more and more stars support causes related to the environment and animal welfare. The oceans, the ozone layer, and overall nature are endangered. We need more initiatives and commitments. Henry Cavill is doing a great job. Congratulations!
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
** The greatest danger to the lemurs has been deforestation due to the expansion of cropland and pasture for cattle. However, the presence of lemurs in national parks helps drive ecotourism, and the ring-tailed lemur is considered an icon of Madagascar.
Starting in 1927, the Malagasy government has declared all lemurs as “protected” by establishing areas that are classified under three categories: National Parks (Parcs Nationaux), Strict Nature Reserves (Réserves Naturelles Intégrales), and Special Reserves (Réserves Spéciales).
