Lemurpalooza at Duke Lemur Center

loris

Calling all lemur lovers, Lemurpalooza is only a week away! On Saturday, June 4th the Duke Lemur Center will be hosting a fun-filled evening where the public can come meet some special primates and learn about how we can help save these truly unique animals. This special evening experience allows families to stroll and view the animals at their own pace (Usually a visit to the center must be a guided tour.) During Lemurpalooza you can symbolically adopt lemurs, which raises funds to help care for the critically endangered animals at the Duke Lemur Center. Keepers and education staff will also be there to answer all questions about each animal that is up for adoption.

If we lived in the area, we would definitely be attending … but since we don’t we decided to support Lemurpalooza in our own way. Starting today through June 4, 2016 Creations 4 Wildlife will donate an additional $2 for every Madagascar’s Jewel bracelet sold. This is in addition to the 40% we already donate, which means that $12 of each lemur bracelet will go directly to lemur conservation!

Order your Madagascar’s Jewel bracelet today and help save lemurs!

Let’s Celebrate World Lemur Festival with $200 for Lemurs!

Why yes, yes you did!

 

The Duke Lemur Center won first place in the Creations 4 Wildlife Conservation Challenge and will be getting extra money for every lemur bracelet sold this month. Originally the additional donation was only during the challenge … However, we decided to keep the extra $3 per Madagascar’s Jewel sold going all month long.

We thought this was the perfect way to help celebrate World Lemur Festival and these amazing little primates! For an animal that only inhabits one small island in the entire world, the loss of lemurs would be a tragedy.

The goal is to raise a minimum of $200 for the Duke Lemur Center by October 31, 2015.

Our standard donation of 40% plus the additional $3 for winning the Conservation Challenge means that we only need to sell 15 lemur bracelets to reach our goal.

You can help by purchasing a Madagascar’s Jewel bracelet of your own – we think they make the perfect fall accessory.

 

Already have your Madagascar’s Jewel? No problem, share our lemur goal with your friends or better yet, surprise them with a Creations 4 Wildlife bracelet of their own!
