Each Wednesday we join over 100 of our Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA)
colleagues to promote awareness about endangered species, programs, and opportunities to engage with an AZA facility near you. Today it is LCF’s turn to ‘share!’
Elena Krapcheva of Madly Video Production made this short video at LCF for our contribution to #WildWed. CLICK HERE to watch the video on YouTube, or follow us and our AZA friends on Facebook and Twitter – look for your local zoo and aquarium!
In the video you will see lemurs as they leap and explore their forest habitat at LCF in sunny Myakka City, Florida. The multispecies habitats give the lemurs a naturalistic environment where they can leap from tree to tree, climb around in the canopy, forage for leaves and of course play!
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 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.
