This past week I was invited to visit the Lemur Conservation Foundation located near Mayakka City, FL. in Manatee County. The foundation was established in 1997 and have accumulated 120 acres of forest to house their facility. Approximately 56 lemurs of different varieties live in two 10 acre forests surrounded by a 13 foot fence. It was an amazing experience to photograph two species, the ring-tailed and red-cuffed.
This female ring-tailed Lemur was named Ansell. She is 18 years old and had one male baby just over a month ago. The little guy was either nursing or on her back the entire time we were there.
