The Sambirano woolly lemur (Avahi unicolor), also known as the Sambirano avahi or Unicolor woolly lemur, is a species of woolly lemur native to western Madagascar.[1]

Habitat[edit]

This species is very poorly known, since so far there have been just a few specimens found. They might be living in the Sambirano region in north-western Madagascar. Probable limits of their distribution are the Sambiran River in the north and the Andranomalaza or Maevarano River in the south.[3]

Conservation[edit]

As It is not known to which degree the species is hunted, deforestation is probably the main threat it has to face. It is listed on Appendix I of CITES. Since there are only a few known specimens in protected areas, Additional research and extending the reserves would be essential.[4]
