Zoology Professor to Present Madagascar Ecotour

OGDEN, Utah – Sam Zeveloff, zoology department professor and chair, will present a photographic ecotour of his recent trip to Madagascar with the Lemur Conservation Foundation.

Zeveloff’s presentation, part of the monthly Wednesday science conversations series at Weber State University, will be held Feb. 18 at noon in Lind Lecture Hall Room 124 on WSU’s Ogden campus. The presentation is free to the public.

Considered one of the most remarkable zoological districts on the planet, the island nation of Madagascar is home to more than 50 lemur species. A majority of its flora and fauna, including more than 90 percent of its mammal species, are endemic to the island. Madagascar is home to more baobab tree species on its 226,658 square mile acreage in the Indian Ocean than the entire continent of Africa.

The ecotour is presented by WSU’s Sigma Xi chapter.
