LIMITED EDITION holiday adoption package now available!

Our limited-edition 2018 holiday adoption package includes a plush lemur, gift packaging, quarterly updates about Halley and her family, a photo, a sticker, and newly a redesigned adoption certificate, species fact sheet, and bio.

This season, give the gift of lemurs! The DLC’s popular Adopt a Lemur program is thrilled to announce a special holiday adoption package featuring black and white ruffed lemur Halley! This special adoption gift is $75 and can be sent to your loved ones anywhere within the United States.

We’ve also redesigned our adoption materials specifically for this species, so order Halley’s Holiday Adoption with Plushie package for the holidays and check out our brand-new fact sheets and bio! You or your chosen recipient will also receive an adoption certificate, a sticker, a photo of Halley and one of her brand-new twins, and quarterly email updates about Halley and her family, making this a fun, educational gift that keeps giving all year ’round!

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