Adopt a Lemur

You can help care for the lemurs. While the average cost to house, feed, and provide needed veterinary treatment, daily care and training for one lemur is approximately $7,400 per year, it helps all our lemurs and the lemurs in Madagascar when donors invest in a single animal.

For anywhere from $50 – $7,400, a person may receive a packet of information about a single animal or have us send a packet of information to a friend or relative. You choose your level of support. You choose the species your packet will highlight.

Make your gift to Duke online by completing the form below.  Fields marked with * are required.
