Hapalemur alaotrensis (Alaotra gentle lemur; local name: bandro) is the only lemur living constantly in wetlands.

The bandro only exists in the marshes fringing Lake Alaotra (Madagascar). Major threats are habitat destruction for rice production and pet trade. A bandro as seen in the clip here can be bought for less than 3 Euro (less than a chicken produced in a German or USA factory!), but chances of survival in captivity are slim. Lollipops and bananas won’t do the trick!
The international team of Madagascar Wildlife Conservation promotes long-term initiatives that integrate biodiversity conservation, environmental education and rural development. Thanks for supporting us in the conservation of this unique lemur and its habitat:
