If you love lemurs and want to see them in their native habitat, you’re going to have to get to the island of Madagascar, where the animals are natives. But if you can’t quite make it to Africa (or Sir Richard Branson's island sanctuary for them), there’s a pretty good plan B: the Duke Lemur Center, at Duke University in Durham, NC, not far from the Raleigh/Durham airport.

The center at Duke is home to the world’s largest sanctuary for prosimian animals, which includes lemurs, bush babies, aye-ayes, and other adorable creatures.
