Springfield zoo asks for help naming baby lemurs


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) - The Henson Robinson Zoo needs your help naming two new baby Red Ruffed Lemurs.

The zoo announced the birth of the lemurs early this year.

Guests can vote on one of four names for both the male and female lemurs.

The zoo is asking people to provide a small donation with their vote to fund lemur conservation.

The zoo will match donations up to $1,000 that will go to Association Mitsinjo based in Madagascar.

Voting will be June 27 through July 15.

The zoo will announce the selected names on its Facebook page.

Those who vote will also get a coupon for one free child visit that is good through the rest of the summer.

Two voters will be selected to receive a special prize.
