Mission Statement

The Lemur Conservation Foundation is dedicated to the preservation and conservation of the primates of Madagascar through managed breeding, scientific research, education, and art.

Description


Myakka City Lemur Reserve

The Lemur Conservation Foundation is home to over 50 lemurs of six different species, most of which are critically endangered or endangered. Incorporated as a non-profit in 1996, LCF has since grown into an AZA certified related facility dedicated to the preservation and conservation of the primates of Madagascar. The Mianatra Center for Lemur Studies and the Anne & Walter Bladstrom Library are also located at this facility and serve as a preeminent site for educational resources for visiting students, educators, and scientific researchers.


Madagascar Programs

The Lemur Conservation Foundation partners with scientists and conservationists on the ground in Madagascar, one of the world's hottest biodiversity hotspots, and the only place where lemurs are found naturally. LCF maintains an active office in northeastern Madagascar and supports conservation initiatives with a focus on community and habitat protection programs in and around Anjanaharibe-Sud Special Reserve and Marojejy National Park.

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.
