Today is the day! Join the GivingTuesday global movement by protecting endangered lemurs with a donation to the Lemur Conservation Foundation.
Your gift of time for Madagascar’s primates will help us expand and continue our programs that are protecting lemurs and their habitat. Please help us succeed at reaching our GivingTuesday goal of $3,000.
The Lemur Conservation Foundation works to protect the 17 species of lemurs listed below from extinction—6 at our reserve in Florida and 11 in the areas where we work on the ground in Madagascar. Learn more about these species here.
