Myakka City Lemur Reserve

The Lemur Conservation Foundation is a small non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation and conservation of the primates of Madagascar through captive breeding, scientific research, education, and reintroduction.

Myakka City Lemur Reserve is 90 acre forest area home to five different lemur species. The existing vegetation in the forests has been supplemented by plantings of mango, passion fruit, guava, grapes, banana, persimmon, and bamboo species already found to be widespread in Florida. Every effort is made to maintain the colony in as natural a state as possible so that behavioral research will be maximally unbiased.
