Duke Lemur Center

Some 233 lemurs have traveled from the island of Madagascar to call the Duke Lemur Center in Durham home. Here, at one of the world’s largest sanctuaries for rare and endangered prosimian primates, they find protection and able tennis partners in their caretakers. The Lemur Center looks to promote research and understanding of these interesting creatures—ancient relatives of monkeys, apes, and humans—while further sustaining global biodiversity.

Not ones to keep these creatures all to themselves, the scientists at the Duke Lemur Center offer an array of tours that let visitors get up close. During Lemurs Live!, a knowledgeable guide introduces them to about 10 different species and explains what makes them some of the most interesting animals on the planet.

Amazing place! The guides are extremely wise--come with any questions you have about lemurs.

We really enjoyed our walk through the center and seeing the surprisingly different kinds of lemurs. How the center exhibits the nocturnal lemurs without disturbing the animals was very creative. The grounds were pretty as well; I'd have loved to take some cuttings. We'd love to go back, and think the center would make a great location for a party.
