Meet the world’s most endangered mammals

Learn with Lemurs

Next Event: April 26-28, 2024

The Duke Lemur Center is the world's largest sanctuary for rare and endangered prosimian primates. Housing nearly 250 lemurs, the largest population outside of their natural habitat of Madagascar, the Duke Lemur Center offers an opportunity not only to see these amazing animals firsthand but learn directly from the experts working to protect them.

This 3-day weekend adventure offers a walk with the lemurs, exploring lemur habits and behaviors, and lectures featuring Duke faculty with the most up to date research. 

We invite you to come experience what is perhaps the most unique facility at Duke! 

What can you learn from a lemur?

Duke University alumnus Luke Dollar ’95, MS’05, PhD’06 talks about how the Duke Lemur Center inspired him to become a conservation biologist in Madagascar.
