Research Retirement Fund
From the Laboratory to a New Life...
Over the years, Jungle Friends has been asked to take in hundreds of monkeys from research laboratories. We are extremely happy with this trend of retiring the monkeys from research, but we need your help!
We are committed to helping captive primates in any way possible - but without funding to expand our facilities and to provide for ongoing care, all we can offer is help searching for sanctuary homes elsewhere. And, like Jungle Friends, most other credible sanctuaries are already operating at capacity.
We need more money and more sanctuaries! Please help us offer a safe haven to these monkeys who have had so little. Donate to our Research Retirement Fund today.
Jungle Friends' intern program is designed to help other learn about sanctuary operations. If you are interested in starting a primate sanctuary, we will help you do it!
