Don't miss out on this fun event at the Duke Lemur Center! Our goal is to raise much-needed funding for our Madagascar Conservation Programs! With a gift of $125 (admission for one), a gift of $250 (admission for two), and other recognition levels - including a VIP reception for gifts of $1,000 or more - you will enjoy an evening under the stars with lemurs and lemur-lovers alike! You get a glimpse of areas like our veterinary lab and kitchen that you won't see on the public tour path or at our Lemurpalooza events!
