In 2016, LCF launched a 3-year, $2.2M capital campaign,
Leap for Lemurs
, for a desperately needed expansion of our Myakka City, Florida reserve. With nearly 75% raised toward our ambitious goal during our campaign's quiet phase, we're in the final stretch this year and pleased to share our excitement with you.
Why Leap for Lemurs is Needed
Further physical expansion and programmatic exploration is needed so that LCF can advance its urgent mission to help lemurs survive. Our capital campaign will allow us to continue our successful conservation breeding program and foster more scientific research on undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels by:
- Increasing much-needed forest habitat and shelter for LCF's growing population of endangered lemurs
- Providing a veterinary clinic and indoor/outdoor quarantine shelter
- Building an on-site maintenance shop
- Underwriting operational costs
Our initiatives will also inspire stewardship of the earth's environment and move students and visitors of all ages to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of lemur natural history.
Thank You to Our Capital Campaign Donors
We are extremely grateful for the spectacular generosity of our Board and other leading donors, as well as the tremendous support for our Annual Fund that has helped advance the campaign. We hope that you share in our vision—and excitement—as we move toward the greater preservation and conservation of lemurs.
We look forward to updating you on our campaign progress this year. If you are interested in contributing to
