Kelly talks with Dr. Kaberi Kar Gupta, Principal Scientist of the Urban Slender Loris Project, where citizens and scientists learn about this small nocturnal primate found only in Sri Lanka and Southern India in order to figure out how urban coexistance might be possible. 

Slender lorises are arboreal and therefore require continuous forest canopy. This continuity is created by either large trees that are close to each other in old forests or by the climbing vines in forests where the understory is undisturbed. Their preferred diet is mostly insects and fruit.
