TheStreet (May 16, 2014) — Renowned primatologist Dr. Patricia White explains how the tourism trade to see lemurs has helped the struggling economy of Madagascar. In her studies, Dr. White has also found that global warming is hurting the lemurs, which she says will in turn hurt the economy. Dr. White won the 2014 Indianapolis Prize, the world’s leading award for animal conservation. Dr. Wright will also receive the Lilly Medal for her dedication to the lemurs, ecosystems, and people of Madagascar. Dr. White also stars in the IMAX movie Lemurs of Madagascar.
