Mission Statement

The Lemur Conservation Foundation (LCF) is dedicated to the preservation and conservation of the primates of Madagascar through captive breeding, scientific research, and education.


Lemurs, the iconic animal of Madagascar, are engaging ambassadors for the conservation challenges facing Madagascar and the world today. Since our founding LCF has worked to protect lemurs and promote conservation in Madagascar, at home, and around the world.

As a respected voice for lemur conservation, LCF works with professional conservationists, students, teachers, and our members to build global citizenship and conservation partners. Our team works with organizations and individuals in Madagascar, the United States and Canada, and countries around the world combines our knowledge of lemurs, our commitment to conservation education, cutting-edge research, and incorporates the arts in all aspects of our mission to ensure a bright future for lemurs and the communities we serve.

LCF's conservation habitats in Myakka City, Florida is home to our lemur colony, managed breeding program, observation based scientific research, and administrative offices.

Today, over forty lemurs live at LCF. Our free raingnig philosophy gives lemurs the opportunity to engage in a range of natural behaviors in multi species exhibits, much like they do in Madagascar, their only endemic home.

The staff is very friendly and willing to show you around the reserve. The projects are always interesting, especially because you get to see lots of different lemurs up close! It's great to see the difference you make in not only the lives of the lemurs at the reserve, but also how the foundation is making a difference for lemurs in Madagascar.
