A trio of plucky lemurs took over the HuffPost Live studio on Friday to celebrate Dr. Patricia Wright and her ongoing conservation efforts to save the primates and their home country of Madagascar.

Wright was the pivotal force behind the formation of Ranomafana National Park in Madagascar, now a protected area home to 12 different lemur species, including the golden bamboo lemur that she discovered. She was awarded the prestigious Indianapolis Prize earlier this month to continue her work protecting the species.

Take a look at some photos of the lemurs' visit below, and watch the entire interview at the bottom of this post.
