Volunteer

We encourage you to volunteer to support lemur conservation! Below are volunteer opportunities with our members in Madagascar and with us at the Lemur Conservation Network. Click on an organization to learn about the volunteer experience, costs, length of stay, and more.

If you don’t see a good fit, many more of our members could use your help—with social media, graphic design, fundraising and more. We suggest learning about our members and contacting them directly to offer your skills as a volunteer.

  • Lemur Conservation Network

    We are looking for bloggers to write for the Lemur Conservation Network blog. Your blog posts can feature zoos, conservation organizations, lemur research, Madagascar travel, and more. Candidates should have strong writing skills and be able to write to a general audience.


  • Lemur Rescue Center

    The Reniala Reserve in Madagascar welcomes scientists and volunteers who wish to pursue research or assist the reserve by volunteering in a specific area. Volunteers are also need to work at the Rescue Center Lemur (funded by Lemur Love) which rehabilitates formerly captive lemurs.

  • Sainte Luce Reserve

    Sainte Luce Reserve volunteers help with sea turtle and lemur conservation programming and research. We have over ten years experience managing volunteers in this part of Madagascar. Our volunteers often have life-changing, satisfying experiences that provide real benefits to conservation. Volunteers live in bungalows on the edge of the forest for two to ten weeks, including orientation at our base in Fort Dauphin.


  • SEED Madagascar

    SEED Madagascar offers short-term opportunities (2 – 10 weeks) in January, April, July and October, as well as opportunities lasting 1+ years. Volunteers collect data, conduct research and assist with local community conservation education and eco-tourism training. The volunteer program is based in the Littoral forests of Sainte Luce, a beautiful coastal area holding many endangered species.
