About
The Duke Lemur Center is the world's leading facility for the captive care and study of earth's most endangered mammals - lemurs, native only to Madagascar. The Center houses the largest colony of lemurs outside of their island home. We offer students, scientists and the general public the opportunity to visit and learn about these amazing creatures.

The mission of the Duke Lemur Center is to promote research and understanding of prosimians and their natural habitat as a means of advancing the frontiers of knowledge, to contribute to the educational development of future leaders in international scholarship and conservation and to enhance the human condition by stimulating intellectual growth and sustaining global biodiversity.
