Meet Moose and Duffy, twin ring-tailed lemurs born at Lemur Conservation Foundation. Do you know how our lemurs stay clean? Lemurs are groomers!
They pick through each others’ fur to search for parasites and clean off dirt and debris. This time is also used for strengthening social bonds between animals.

About Lemur Conservation Foundation: Lemur Conservation Foundation (LCF) was established in 1996 by Penelope Bodry-Sanders. LCF is a leader in the conservation and preservation of the primates of Madagascar through programs dedicated to observation oriented research, education, and lemur propagation, with a commitment to infuse art into all of our mission programs. LCF is an American Association of Zoos and Aquariums accredited private, 100-acre facility based in Myakka City, Florida. Our current lemur population, representing six species of lemurs, thrives in naturalistic free ranging habitats ranging in size from 9 to 13 acres, and smaller enclosures for animals in need of a more specialized environment. LCF is a respected voice for science, conservation, education, art, and lemurs, the iconic image of the conservation challenges and environmental stewardship facing Madagascar and the world.
