Black lemur (Eulemur macaco). The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species 2020Andriantsimanarilafy, R.R; Borgerson, C.; Clarke, T; Colquhoun, I.C; Cotton, A; Donati, G; Eppley, Timothy M.; Heriniaina, R; Irwin, M; Johnson, S; et al. (2020)The range of the species is severely fragmented and remaining areas of forest are under anthropogenic pressure (Mittermeier et al. 2010, Tinsman et al. 2019). Given this, and that the overall population size is suspected to be in decline at a rate of >50% over three generations, the current assessment lists Eulemur macaco as Endangered.
Red ruffed lemur (Varecia rubra). The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species 2020Borgerson, C.; Eppley, Timothy M.; Patel, E.; Johnson, S; Louis, E.E.; Razafindramanana, J. (2020)A population reduction ofgreater than or equal to 80% is suspected to be met over three generations (24 years, assuming a generation length of 8 years). This is based on a continuing decline of the population, due to unsustainable hunting pressure and a reduction in the extent and quality of habitat from subsistence and cash-crop agriculture, illegal logging for precious timber, and frequent cyclones. Based on suspected and inferred decline, measured direct and indirect threats, and its narrow niche dimensions, the species is listed as Critically Endangered.
White-fronted lemur (Eulemur albifrons). The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species 2020Borgerson, C.; Eppley, Timothy M.; Donati, G; Colquhoun, I.C; Irwin, M; Johnson, S; Louis, E.E.; Patel, E.; Ralainasolo, F.B; Ravaloharimanitra, M.; et al. (2020)Listed as Vulnerable, Eulemur albifrons is suspected to have undergone a population decline greater than or equal to 30% over a period of 24 years (three generations), due primarily to unsustainable hunting pressure and continuing decline in area, extent and quality of habitat. These causes have not ceased, and will, to a large extent, not be easily reversible
