Here’s an aerial view of LCF’s reserve in Myakka City, FL. and the habitat for our lemurs.
The Lemur Conservation Foundation 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 scientific research, education, lemur propagation with a commitment to infuse art into all of our mission programs. LCF is an American Association of Zoological Parks and Aquariums accredited private, 100 acres reserve based in Myakka City, Florida.
Our current lemur population of 42 animals thrives in naturalistic free ranging habitats ranging in size from 9 to 13 areas. 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 today.
