Adopt a Lemur Program

Black and White Ruffed Lemur

Symbolically adopt a lemur and support its care here at the Duke Lemur Center!

Choose your gift level and receive a personalized care package for yourself or an animal lover in your life. You or your chosen recipient will receive an adoption packet* and quarterly email updates for a year on a specific lemur who lives at the Duke Lemur Center.

You are welcome to support lemur care at any level you choose, but a minimum donation of $50 is required to receive a symbolic adoption.

This is a tax-deductible gift which goes towards the $8,400 per year it costs to care for each animal at the DLC, as well as aiding our conservation efforts in Madagascar.

*Due to COVID-19, shipping of adoption packets is delayed. In the meantime, we can send you a digital version of the adoption packet. We will still mail the regular packet as soon as we can.
