Inside Life – Madagascar Lemurs


Madagascar Lemurs

Agent – Billy
AKA – Bill
Age – 14
Destination – Madagascar, Indian Ocean
Mission – Find ring-tailed lemurs behaving badly!

Bill heads to Woburn Safari Park where he is greeted by some cheeky lemurs and their keeper. His assignment is to research their behaviour, but he has no idea his mission won't be complete until he arrives in Madagascar! The Life team need to track down and film a group of lemurs behaving badly, and Billy is determined to catch the naughty primates red-handed.

How has your experience reporting for Inside Life changed you?
It’s the first time that I have been anywhere like Madagascar – it was an amazing experience, the wildlife and the sights and smells, it was all really exciting. I really want to travel more, see the world, and see animals in their natural environment.

What was your scariest moment?
The very first time I went to the reserve was pretty scary, because the lemurs were all running around freely. I'd never been so close to wildlife and it took a while for me to get used to them being around me but when I got used to it, it was really interesting to see them.

What was your most exciting moment?
The most exciting part of my trip to Madagascar was when we went up to a peak, near the city; we could see right across the island and the views were amazing!

Tell us the most interesting fact you learnt?
I really enjoyed learning about the country, because Madagascar has unique plants and animals that aren't found anywhere else in the world.
