Meet the Scientist

Dr. Mary Blair
"Looking for Lorises"
Saturday, October 3rd in the Discovery Room
Sessions at 2:15 pm, 3:00 pm, and 3:45 pm


Dr. Mary Blair

The slow loris’ large eyes and awkward movements make it one of the world’s most adorable mammals. Join Dr. Mary Blair of the AMNH’s Center for Biodiversity and Conservation as she shares stories of her search for these elusive primates. See how she seeks to find out just how many species exist, how many animals remain, and whether their numbers are shrinking. Learn about her treks through the dark forests of Vietnam in search of the smallest, and arguably cutest of them all, the pygmy loris.
