Your gift matters
Your support of the Duke Lemur Center makes so much possible! We rely on gifts from businesses and individuals like you to invest in our work to protect lemurs and their natural habitat in Madagascar. Your support allows us to address priority needs within our conservation, education, and non-invasive research programs.
Make a donation today through the DONATE NOW button above or choose from the options below to direct your gift in support of a specific program area of the Duke Lemur Center:
With a designated gift to the DLC’s Madagascar Conservation Programs, you will support our conservation programs in Madagascar, including ex-situ conservation initiatives, research and student opportunities, and community-based conservation in the island’s SAVA (northeastern) region.
With a designated gift to the Adopt a Lemur Program, you will play a vital role in the care of the animals here at the Center. We house 240+ animals, and the cost of care averages $8,400 per animal per year.
With a designated gift to the Division of Fossil Primates, you will serve as an important stakeholder in our preservation and curation of the DLC’s vast fossil collection, ranging from giant extinct lemurs to the world’s largest and most important collection of early anthropoid fossils.
