Moonlight Activities

A really interesting read and to see the impacts that moonlight in particular can have on the slow loris and other nocturnal primates. This is really important as understanding what might trigger more active or inactive periods in the species could benefit conservation strategies with reference to vulnerable periods where they may be more easily hunted by local people.
