Lemur Love's Mission: Protect lemurs. Empower women. Further science.
Lemur Love's vision: Ensuring lemurs thrive in their forest homes through the power of women, science, and our extended global ‘troop’.
Lemur Love is a US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to preserve Madagascar’s biodiversity by investing in Malagasy people. In addition to our long-term scientific research on wild lemurs, we implement small scale development and humanitarian aid with people living next to lemur habitats, and work to build academic capacity in Malagasy early career researchers and practitioners. These individuals are Madagascar's next generation of conservationists and best situated to affect sustainable conservation in their own country. We believe that people are integral to conservation and aim to center Malagasy voices in our endeavors.
Our work addresses many of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030 including: no poverty (SDG 1), zero hunger (SDG 2), quality education (SDG 4), gender equality (SDG 5), affordable clean energy (SDG 7), decent work and economic growth (SDG 8), industry, innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9), reduced inequalities (SDG 10), sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11), responsible consumption and production (SDG 12), climate action (SDG 13), and life on land (SDG 15), peace, justice, and strong institutions (SDG 16), and partnerships for the goals (SDG 17).
