Watching the primates and other animals grow through the years has been amazing. Anytime I have a chance, I take new friends and their family. I find the sanctuary very peaceful, clean and a great education opportunity.

To be honest, this was one of the worst experiences of any sanctuary, animal preservation or zoo I've ever been too. To start off, we walked in and there was a volunteer pacing back in forth yelling about "getting his stuff" and it was a...More

You can feed monkeys via PVC pipes running from the viewing area to each cage. Food is available for a small fee. You drop some bits of food into the PVC and gravity sends it to the cage, where the monkeys take it in hand.
