Adopt a Lemur Program

The Duke Lemur Center offers eight species for symbolic adoption. Scroll down to adopt your favorite! 

Symbolically adopt a lemur with a donation that supports the care of our animals here at the Duke Lemur Center!

Adopt a lemur for yourself or for someone you care about! An Adopt a Lemur package makes a thoughtful and purposeful gift for friends, family, colleagues, teachers, and others. All animal and lemur lovers in your life will appreciate it!

Your adoption donation goes toward the $8,400 per year cost it takes to care for each animal at the DLC, as well as aiding our conservation efforts in Madagascar.

You or your chosen recipient will receive an adoption packet and quarterly email updates on the species of your choice.

Adopt a Lemur packages are fun, educational gifts that keep giving all year ’round!

Because your symbolically adopted lemur stays here at the Duke Lemur Center, we do the dirty work and you don’t have to scoop the poop!

Adoption packages start at just $50. For a limited time only, a special Holiday Adoption Package with plush lemur is also available for $75, which includes shipping anywhere in the U.S.! Learn more HERE, then place your order below! Order by 12/15 for guaranteed delivery by Christmas (12/25).
