Lemurs Like Cupcakes Too!

We’re picking back up our Charity of the Month program for April after this month’s super-awesome charity competition!  Next month we are partnering with the Duke Lemur Center.  They are the world’s largest sanctuary for rare and endangered prosimian primates, and they house about 250 animals including 15 species of lemurs.  Their mission is to promote research and understanding of prosimians in their natural habitat to contribute to educational development, conservation, and research.  If you want to help out, come on by to either store and pick up a cupcake on Wednesday.  We’re giving them 75 cents of each one sold every Wednesday all month long!

If you want to do more, you can even “Adopt a Lemur” at the center for $50 and we’ll give you a sweet surprise!  Unfortunately, you won’t get to take one home, but there are different packages of goodies available, so check it out!

We brought some sweet treats by the center, and look what they sent us!

In lemur social group, females are dominant and eat first, however, Mosi has some sneaky moves to sneak food before his mate Sheshat!

The lemurs didn’t really get to enjoy any cupcakes, but aren’t the pictures great?!  So help us support the Lemur Center next month by getting cupcakes on Wednesdays and making a donation to the center!
