NEW Lemur Celebration Packages!

What is it?

Whether you want to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, send a unique holiday gift, or just brighten someone’s day – our brand new Lemur Celebration Packages are perfect for any occasion! We’re offering three different package options, so there really is something for everyone. All of our Lemur Celebration Packages include a fully edited, adorable, and informative video of lemurs enjoying fun enrichment for the recipient to enjoy, and hey, no judgment if that recipient is you—we all need some self care right about now! Enrichment plays a crucial role in animal care here at the DLC – click here to learn how! By purchasing a Lemur Celebration Package, you’re contributing to keeping the lemurs happy and healthy. You can even choose to customize your package AND make a lemur’s day by choosing which species you’d like to receive enrichment to be featured in your exclusive custom video. Check out the full details on all of our options below!


What does it include?

We’re offering three different options, so you can choose the one that is best for you!

Everyday Celebration: This option is a perfect little gesture to brighten anyone’s day and includes a link to a nine-minute video full of our favorite clips of our primate residents enjoying a wide range of their favorite enrichment: puzzle feeders, toys, hammocks, and more! As an added bonus, we will send the video access information as soon as you purchase this option. Video access doesn’t expire, so the recipient can return to watch again whenever they would like.

Custom Celebration Package: If you’d like to go for something a little more special AND treat some of our lemurs to a fun day of enrichment, then this option is for you! This package includes:

Access to our full 75-minute virtual tour*

Custom-edited video* featuring our favorite enrichment clips AND footage of the private enrichment session done just for your package!

YOUR CHOICE of which lemur species gets the featured enrichment in the custom video

A personalized lemur e-greeting card sent to your recipient

Deluxe Celebration Package: If you want to pull out all the stops for an animal-lover in your life (and maybe that animal-lover is you?), then this deluxe package is ideal! This package includes:

Access to our full 75-minute virtual tour*

Custom-edited video* featuring footage of the enrichment session done just for your package!

YOUR CHOICE of which lemur species gets the featured enrichment in the custom video

A personalized lemur e-greeting card sent to your recipient

Mailed lemur swag gift bag (FREE shipping within the continental US)

Complementary one-hour Ask an Expert session* with DLC enrichment technician Kate Byrnes – to be scheduled by the recipient with the education team

*Please note that all video of the lemurs will be pre-recorded, and there will not be any live sessions with the lemurs on screen (this includes the Ask an Expert program). Using pre-recorded footage allows us to show you the best views and angles of the lemurs, AND it ensures that the lemurs can have fun on their timeline, so it really is the best option for all primates involved!


What is the cost?

Whether you’re sending a gift to let someone know you’re thinking of them, or purchasing a special treat for yourself, all proceeds from the sale of these packages go right back into supporting our mission to care for, learn from, and protect lemurs.

Everyday Celebration: $15 plus tax

Custom Celebration Package: $150 plus tax

Deluxe Celebration Package: $250 plus tax
