SERIES 6: ISLAND OF LEMURS: MADAGASCAR

October 15, 8:30 - 10:00pm

Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman narrates the IMAX 3D documentary “Island of Lemurs: Madagascar,” the incredible true story of nature’s greatest explorers: lemurs. 

Captured with IMAX 3D cameras, the film takes audiences on a spectacular journey to the remote and wondrous world of Madagascar, where lemurs arrived millions of years ago as castaways. They’ve since evolved into hundreds of diverse species, but are now highly endangered.

"Island of Lemurs: Madagascar" highlights the tireless efforts of trailblazing scientist Dr. Patricia C. Wright and her lifelong mission to help these strange and adorable creatures survive in the modern world.

The Traveller’s Palm tree (Ravenala madagascariensis) produces stunningly blue seeds as seen in top photo. In its native Madagascan rainforest habitat, the seeds are dispersed by lemurs, which are able to see the seed’s unusual coloration.

The palm - a misnomer, since the plant is not actually a palm, but rather a relative of bananas and heliconias - is a popular landscaping accent in the tropics due to its iconic fan-forming giant petioles and banana-like leaves.
