About the Lemur Conservation Network

About the Lemur Conservation Network

We believe that lemurs can be saved from extinction if we all work together.

The Lemur Conservation Network creates spaces for inspiration, education, empowerment, and collaboration for the lemur conservation community, Malagasy people, and lemur fans so that Madagascar’s wildlife can thrive.

By providing a network of over 60 conservation organizations, we raise awareness for lemurs and those working to save them from extinction in Madagascar.  We also promote the World Lemur Festival, create educational materials, and inspire people around the world to love lemurs. We empower lemur fans to help lemurs by learning about them, traveling to Madagascar, and supporting conservation through sharing, donating, and volunteering.

History of the Lemur Conservation Network

The LCN launched in 2015 as a project of the IUCN Species Survival Commission Primate Specialist Group. In January 2021, we became an independent not-for-profit organization registered in the USA.
