Ring-tailed lemurs the most frequently trafficked lemur species
We're using science to save them from extinction,
but we need your help!
Lemur Love is a registered 501(c)(3) and all donations are tax deductible in the US.
we are the first researchers to apply forensic DNA techniques to Fight trafficking of Endangered lemurs.
Here’s the good news:
Support our Science:
We need sponsors who are who are willing to virtually adopt lemur poop samples, so that we can fund molecular analyses and move forward with saving ring-tailed lemurs from extinction! We’re collaborating with Dr. Andrea Baden and her Primate Molecular Ecology Lab (PMEL) at Hunter College. PMEL will run all laboratory analyses on a no-fee basis. Laboratory supplies for this research total $18 733, which is about $250/sample.
How to help:
Feeling generous? You can virtually adopt an entire lemur poop sample ($250)!
Or, feeling social? You and 4 friends can each chip in $50 to virtually adopt a lemur poop sample as a group! Have another amount in mind? Everything helps!
We'll send you a small thank you gift in the mail. All contributions are tax deductible within the United States (Lemur Love, Inc. is a 501(c)(3)) and will support our laboratory analyses of ring-tailed lemur fecal samples, with the aim of understanding and dismantling the illegal wildlife trafficking in Madagascar.
Your donation saves lemurs!
We are very proud to of had the data collection portion of this project funded by the Margot Marsh Biodiversity Foundation, and private donors. Their/your support makes it possible for us to SAVE LEMURS.
