“Calling” all lemur lovers! 📞 Want to put your old Android phone to good use? The DLC is looking for donations of Android phones to use with our mouse lemurs and touchscreen cognition studies!
In the past, researcher Ray Vagell has used tablet computers for touchscreen color vision research with ruffed lemurs; now, we’d like to create a mini version to use for our littlest lemur residents!
Donated phones can be from any company – Samsung, Google, LG, Motorola, etc. – as long as they’re Android devices. (Please note that we can’t accept Apple iPhones.) Phones should be no more than approximately three years old and need to cleared of all personal data. If possible, it would be great if you could send the charging cord, too!

Duke Lemur Center
Attn: Animal Training Department

Thank you for considering donating your old phone! We are so grateful!
