Google+ Hangout with the Duke Lemur Center
Duke Lemur Center
Duke Lemur Center postdoctoral fellow Erik Patel is featured in an hour-long special on Animal Planet, Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012 at 8 p.m. Eastern, talking about his work in Madagascar with the rare and elusive (and gorgeous) silky sifaka lemur.
To celebrate, join a Google+ Hangout On Air with Erik and Charlie Welch, lemur center conservation coordinator, before and after this BBC-produced documentary airs to learn more about their efforts to prevent illegal logging, to educate Malagasy schoolchildren about conservation and to establish protected areas around the last remaining lemur habitat.
There will be two Google+ Hangouts -- one at 7:15 p.m. and another at 9:15 p.m.
