Lemur Conservation Foundation has a wide variety of volunteer
opportunities are available at the Myakka City Lemur Reserve.
They range from planting trees, gardening, trail maintenance and
forest management, creating enrichment items and toys for the
lemurs, animal care, painting and other construction projects,
and assisting with office duties.
All volunteers bring with them a unique set of skills and
abilities that can benefit our lemur collection and organization
as a whole. Please contact us and tell us more about yourself
and your past experiences. There is a niche for everyone here
on the Reserve.
Keep in mind some jobs are outside and involve physical labor,
requiring the ability to stand for significant periods of time
and lift heavy objects. Volunteers interested in working on the
grounds must be able to tolerate high temperatures and humidity.
All volunteers are encouraged to attend a Volunteer Orientation
to learn more about the opportunities here at the Myakka City
Lemur Reserve and have a one-on-one interview.
Volunteers interested in working in animal care must bring proof
of a negative TB test done within one year prior to volunteering
on the Reserve. (Individual Volunteers must be 18 or older. If
you are interested in group Volunteering with younger
