The Importance Of Trees At The Lemur Conservation Foundation Myakka City Reserve

TREES at the reserve Ring-tailed

For our young lemurs learning to navigate the forest, tree limbs act as a natural playground as mom watches from nearby. They learn little by little to climb higher and higher as the weeks go by… even if they do start by hanging upside down.

Over the years staff and volunteers have planted hundreds of Florida Native trees at the lemur reserve. Planting trees benefits the lemurs in their habitat while also benefiting the Earth. If you would like to volunteer to plant trees at the Myakka City Lemur Reserve contact pwalsh@lemurreserve.org.

Trees play an important role at the Myakka City Lemur Reserve. Since lemurs walk along tree branches and jump from tree to tree the horizontal branches of our oak trees are the perfect addition to their habitat.  For more information about the reserve visit our website     http://www.lemurreserve.org/myakka.html

THE LEMUR CONSERVATION FOUNDATION IS DEDICATED TO THE PRESERVATION AND CONSERVATION OF LEMURS, THE PRIMATES OF MADAGASCAR, THROUGH CAPTIVE BREEDING, SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH, AND EDUCATION.
