The Duke Lemur Center through its living laboratory advances science, scholarship, and biological conservation through interdisciplinary research on lemurs. By engaging scientists, students and the public in new discoveries and global awareness, the Center promotes a deeper appreciation of biodiversity and an understanding of the power of scientific discovery.
The Nunn Lab has also partnered with the Duke Lemur Center's SAVA Conservation project:
The Duke Lemur Center’s newest conservation initiative in northeastern Madagascar features community-based conservation alongside research and student volunteer programs amidst the backdrop of Marojejy massif. Starting in 2012, the Duke Lemur Center (DLC) began an independent conservation initiative, in the SAVA (Sambava-Andapa-Vohemar-Antalaha) region of northeastern Madagascar. This region contains over 820 square kilometers of mountainous primary rainforest in protected areas which include Marojejy National Park, part of the Rainforests of the Atsinanana World Heritage Site (Patel and Welch, 2013). - See more at: http://lemur.duke.edu/protect/conservation/sava-conservation/#sthash.LcEpahnN.dpuf
