Lemur Sounds + Beatboxing = Sick Beats for Conservation

May 27, 2015 - What happens when an anthropology professor teams up with a music producer/beatboxer? They create a conservation campaign you can dance to. Patricia Wright and Ben Mirin are using the vocalizations of Madagascar lemurs to create music, hoping it will not only entertain but also help protect the lemurs' natural habitat.

Wright is a renowned primatologist and National Geographic who's studied lemurs in the wild since the 1980s. She also served on the National Geographic Society's Committee for Research and Exploration (2000-2009) and was a member of the NGS Conservation Trust (2001-2010).
