Lemur Love protects biodiversity by rehabilitating lemurs rescued from the illegal pet and bushmeat trades.
Inspiring love for lemurs. Advancing knowledge and supporting action so Madagascar’s wildlife and people thrive.
Lemur Love believes in leveraging both the heart and the mind in the movement to preserve Madagascar’s unique and Endangered primates, the lemurs. Our goal is to cultivate empathy and appreciation for lemurs that crosses borders and cultures and inspires action to help protect lemurs from extinction. We envision a world where both lemurs and humans thrive.
Lemur Love conducts and disseminates scientific research on wild lemur populations and wild-caught former pet ring-tailed lemurs in Madagascar. Moreover, along with our partners at the Pet Lemur Survey, we consult with local people in order to understand resource needs and implement conservation solutions that benefit both lemurs and humans.
In addition, Lemur Love uses social media to celebrate lemurs in creative ways. By bringing together lemur experts and enthusiasts from around the world, we seek to cultivate sustained awareness and develop novel approaches that will ensure lemur conservation for years to come.
What lemurs does Lemur Love protect?
Through its programming, Lemur Love has a direct impact on ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta), which are rehabilitated from pet and bushmeat trades thanks to Lemur Love’s work.
Partnerships with the local communities are integral to Lemur Love’s general philosophy and to the sustainability of their programs. Much of their work aims to help Malagasy programs, including the Lemur Rescue Center and the NGO Reniala. In addition, they have completed some outreach projects including youth-targeted conservation education as well as nutritional surveys of villagers living next to habitats important for lemur conservation.
