The Duke Lemur Center is closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it does offer a free weekly series via YouTube Live that dives deep into lemur-related topics.

The sessions take place at 10 a.m., every Thursday, through the center's virtual education partner, Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants.

If you can't make it to YouTube at 10 a.m., Thursday, the sessions are recorded and posted on the center's Facebook and YouTube channels.

In recent weeks, the series has featured topics such as All about Aye-ayes and what makes them unique animals; a tour of the center's Natural Habitat Enclosures and a look at some free-ranging lemurs; and what fossil preparators do.

You can find the full playlist on the center's YouTube channel. More information is on the center's website.
