This week, Dr. Lydia Light and I took graduate and undergraduate students to the Lemur Conservation Foundation in Myakka City, FL to learn how to do identify primates, perform behavioral ecology, nutritional ecology, and familiarize with lemur behavior. Below are some pictures from their experience.

I'm Adam Johnson, an environmental anthropologist teaching at University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Northwest Vista College while completing my Ph.D. at UTSA after teaching as a lecturer at UNCC for 3 years.
My work engages human-animal relations. I am interested in how humans and wild animals find ways to get along. The focus of my research are the intimate moments of encounter between humans and wild animals. My current project explores human-javelina relations in Texas, including: affective relationships between javelinas and property owners, tourist-javelina encounters at Big Bend National Park, and the intimacy and care that pairs with violence in hunting.
I'm also interested in Science and Technology Studies, sexuality and gender, and primate behavior and ecology.

I did a research internship here years ago and love LCF! I am glad the reserve is being used in this way. Thanks for sharing the pictures- Is that an observation deck in a tree in the last photo?!
Yes it is
