Your support makes it possible for us to DISCOVER biological phenomena that would otherwise be unseen; to ENGAGE the next generation of conservation scholars; and to PROTECT the most endangered primates on Earth. Your gift at any level makes a difference!
Online giving is quick, simple, and secure! Choose from four available giving options to support the DLC’s mission. Please click on your desired program to be redirected to the appropriate online giving page:
Your Unrestricted Gift will play a vital role in all the wonderful things that help us make a difference for lemurs, science, and conservation! Your unrestricted gift will be directed toward the Center’s most important needs.
Your gift to the DLC’s Madagascar Programs Fund is directed toward 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.
Your gift to the Adopt a Lemur Program is designated specifically toward 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.
Donations to the Division of Fossil Primates support the 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.
