World lemur festival has started in Madagascar in 2014, and ever since it has cerebrated each year all around the world. It takes place the last week of October every year for one week. People can learn and come to like the lemurs even more through the workshop and other events. Japan Monkey Centre support this idea, and this year we are going to have our own World lemur festival at Japan Monkey Centre.

"I must see wild lemurs!" Rie Akami, the curator at Japan Monkey Centre, took a vacation in order to make her thought come true and visit Madagascar with her two-year- old daughter on her back. The place that she saw was the world of mysterious creatures. She will talk about her amazing experience and shows a lot of pictures and movies.
