We are currently working to establish the Louisiana Lemur Center, which will house rescued pet trade lemurs and utilize rehabilitation, training, and non-invasive research programs developed with the highest standards in animal care and management. One of the biggest threats endangering lemurs is the high demand for them in the pet trade. Although illegal in most of the United States, many people still keep lemurs as pets, despite the obvious detriment that doing so has on the lemurs’ well-being.
Help make the Louisiana Lemur Center a reality!
The Louisiana Lemur Foundation is committed to conservation, education, & scientific discovery by providing expert care to lemurs, participating in non-invasive research endeavors, & educating the public about all things lemur including the importance of their conservation & of biodiversity in general.
