SciCafe: The Search for Slow Lorises

Mary Blair, primatologist, speaking to the SciCafe audience, with the AMNH podcast logo overlaid on top.

Slow lorises may look like big-eyed Ewoks, but their cute countenance has made these primates a target of the illegal wildlife trade. In this podcast, Mary Blair, primatologist and Director of Biodiversity Informatics Research at the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, discusses how research on these endangered animals can contribute to a better understanding of wildlife trafficking and the risk of zoonotic disease spread.

This lecture took place at the Museum on March 1, 2017.
