More about Coauthors. Please do not blame any coauthors for information maybe misinterpreted or incorrectly included by the compiler!

About the data included
Data in this website have been checked carefully, but since a compiler cannot be an expert for everything and this work is usually done during night beside a full-time job and other tasks, presence of some type errors or misinterpretations is possible. Sources are always quoted to allow use of original literature. Data and comments by the compiler are partly included without quotation.
The database is not supposed to decide in cases of controversial views, it tries to provide information as completely as possible, partly with explanatory comments by the compiler, allowing the user to judge on his own.

The loris and potto conservation database is part of a loris conservation project which is charitable as a project of Quantum Conservation*, tax no. I/385 (Finanzamt / revenue office Suhlingen, Germany), but as a rule is not systematically involved in fundraising. All work done for the project is volunteer, unpaid work, all costs for compiling this website including computer equipment, are paid by the compiler . For any donations for lorises received within Germany, a tax exemption receipt from Quantum Conservation can be issued. The money is fully transferred to suitable projects for support of conservation, rescue or conservation-related research. 
If you want to help lorises with a donation or in other ways,  please see our page "How you can help" for possibilities.
