Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary - Family Volunteering & Donations
Being a non-profit primate sanctuary, we rely on kind-hearted individuals like you. Our ability to provide a safe haven for these unwanted, abused, or neglected primates can be directly attributed to the donations, supplies, and time given to us by individuals who care enough to go out of their way to help others... in this case, to help more than 100 monkeys!
Children under the age of 18 may attend one of our Special Volunteer Days, if arrangements are made in advance with the Jungle Friends office, to assure age-appropriate activities will be available. While on Sanctuary grounds, each child must be accompanied and closely supervised by a parent at all times.
Special Volunteer Days are posted on the Events Calendar. On these days, we have our usual volunteer work session from 10 am to 2 pm, followed by a tour led by Jungle Friends staff.
