Why We Love Mireya Mayor

Click here for Mireya’s profile.

Mireya Mayor is our featured scientist for the next couple weeks. And here’s why we love her deeply:

1. She has been chased by a gorilla (and lived to tell about it).
2. She has pink boots… and a machete.
3. She knows how to fluff a mean pom pom (they come unfluffed – who knew?).
4. She is tireless in the work she does on behalf of all the living creatures of Madagascar.
5. The look on her face when she holds one of her precious mouse lemurs.

She’s got the mouse lemur in her hands, the mouse, mouse lemur in her hands….

And now our haiku homage:

Jungle scientist
Exploring the darkness sees
Mouse lemur light up.
