The Lemur Conservation Foundation (LCF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and conservating the primates of Madagascar, the lemurs. Founded in 1996 and headquartered in Myakka City, Florida, LCF maintains two reserves in Madagascar and a lemur reserve in Florida. The organization focuses on lemur propagation, scientific research, education, and art, fostering a greater understanding of these unique animals and their importance to the world.
The Lemur Conservation Foundation is primarily a research and conservation organization, and its facility in Florida is not regularly open to the public. However, they host occasional open house events and offer private tours and educational programs by appointment. These experiences provide a unique opportunity to learn about lemurs and the Foundation's efforts to preserve their habitats and populations. Visitors can expect a profoundly educational experience, focusing on conservation efforts and understanding lemurs' vital role in our ecosystem.
LCF's conservation efforts revolve around preserving and enhancing the habitats for lemurs both in the United States and Madagascar. They maintain breeding programs for several endangered lemur species, and their efforts have successfully reared multiple lemur infants. They also conduct and support scientific research on lemurs and work to educate the public about these primates and their conservation needs. Furthermore, LCF collaborates with other zoological and conservation organizations globally to advocate for and advance lemur conservation.
