AZA Certification

Association of Zoos & Aquariums

LCF is very proud to report that in March 2011 the Myakka City Lemur Reserve again received certification from the Association of Zoos & Aquariums as a Related Facility.  Originally certified in 1996, MCLR continues to maintain the highest standards for the lemur colony.

The certification process includes a rigorous inspection of the facility's operation in areas such as collection care (including living environment and daily enrichment,) keeper training, safety for animals, staff and visitors education programs, conservation efforts, veterinary programs and financial stability.

Certification provides assurance of the professional and ethical values of LCF to outside organizations, allowing other institutions to cooperate with the reserve with confidence. Partnership with the AZA also provides the Reserve with additional grant opportunities and greater access to lemurs via animal loans and donations. The Lemur Conservation Foundation's education and conservation mission will be further promoted through the AZA's dynamic network of dedicated institutions, experienced experts, and passionate professionals. Together we all work towards ensuring a future full of lemurs.
