Café Scientifique presentsLITTLE FIREFACES : WHY YOUTUBE LOVES THE SLOW LORIS
Thursday 20 September 7pmTickets free of charge but must be booked in advanceAges 16+
The name Little Fireface comes from the Sudanese name for slow loris, muka geni. Oxford Brookes University's Professor in Primate Conservation Anna Nekaris comes to tell us about her work with this fascinating, but endangered, creature and her campaign to end the trade in it.
You may have seen Professor Nekaris in the stunning BBC documentary about the slow loris in Indonesia. In other languages, loris means thin one, wind monkey (both in Sumatra and Thailand), forest baby, and the shy one.
Oxford Brookes University's Professor in Primate Conservation Anna Nekaris began her studies of the slow loris species in 1994, with her interest in these wonderful beasts kindled in 1992 at a conference called Creatures of the Dark the Nocturnal Prosimians. Since then she has never looked back and has now studied every species of slow and slender loris in the wild. Anna spends much of her time abroad researching and at home working tirelesly with the media to expose the loris's plight, so don't miss a very rare opportunity to hear her in person at Cornerstone.
