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.
And now our haiku homage:
Exploring the darkness sees
Mouse lemur light up.
We hope you enjoy Mireya’s videos and follow her links to learn more about all the amazing work she does.
