The Billionaire who loves ocean travel, space travel, and flying in general, after saving Moskito Island has now decided to save the lemurs that too on his private Caribbean island. In a bid to do his bit, he is all set to bring the first set of around 30 lemurs from zoos to Moskito Island. The habitat is about 85 miles from Puerto Rico, which will be surrounded by tamarind trees for food and will keep humans at bay.
Branson stressed importing the common ring-tailed lemurs and add later more later with critics talking about the local lizard and birdlife that will also be affected. He added, “Maybe in time we could find one or two other islands in the world, preferably bigger islands so that if Madagascar continues to destroy their habitat, the lemurs will at least survive somewhere on the planet.”
