Ring-tailed Lemurs

Ring-tailed lemurs are listed as endangered due to habitat loss, hunting, and illegal pet trade. These primates are native to the island of Madagascar and are known for their distinctive striped tails. Deforestation and human activities such as agriculture and logging have resulted in the destruction of their natural habitat, leaving them with limited resources and increased vulnerability to predators. Additionally, they are hunted for their meat and are popular targets of the illegal pet trade. Conservation efforts, including habitat protection, awareness campaigns, and enforcement of laws against hunting and trafficking, are crucial for the survival of these fascinating animals. Without significant action, the ring-tailed lemur may face extinction in the near future.

Great apron

I bought this as a present and it's a lovely apron. It looks as pictured and is a good size for an adult, coming to about knee length. It's good quality and I'd buy another apron in the same line!
