More lemurs, less people please
I watched this for the lemurs and the beautiful nature footage. I was hoping to see more focus on the animals and not on people, well-meaning though they may be. Unfortunately about half of this documentary is devoted to Dr. Patricia Wright and her associates patting themselves on the back for their conservation efforts. I applaud them for their work but, come on, they could have told us all about this through the narration without having to take the focus off of the lemurs. The footage of the animals and scenery that we do get is great but there's just not enough of it. Also it's lacking a story that these things so often come up with as we follow along the animals. Here the story is about the people protecting the lemurs. At the end Dr. Wright says "I want to share these incredible animals with the world" while she is front and center of the shot so we don't forget who the real star of this is. Like I said, I watched to see the beauty of nature and not the vanity of humans.
