Join us for a fall benefit to support the DLC's Madagascar Conservation Programs!
Enjoy heavy appetizers, a wonderful selection of wines donated by Leland Little Auctions, and locally brewed beer donated by Durham's own Fullsteam Brewery - including an exclusive brew named after our newest blue-eyed black lemur, Ranomasina.

Relax with other animal-lovers in the twilight tropical ambiance of the Duke Lemur Center during this special evening! Meet or get re-acquainted with our rare and beautiful lemurs, browse the items in our silent auction, see behind-the-scenes spaces like the vet hospital and prep kitchen, and participate in interactive conservation experiences along the tour path -- including a Madagascar presentation by conservationists Sir Charlie Welch and Lady Andrea Katz.
