Wat je gaat doen

Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary is the largest New World primate sanctuary in the US. We are home to over 300 monkeys including capuchins, marmosets, tamarins, squirrel and spider monkeys. Most of the monkeys were released from laboratory research, others were former "pets", some were in the entertainment industry and still others were confiscations by authorities.

During your tour you will meet the monkeys up-close and personal. Kari, the Founder of Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary, Sara, Kari's assistant who has been with the sanctuary since 2001, Bri, with us since 2012 and the Sanctuary Manager, and/or Jennifer, long-time supporter and volunteer since 2001, will make the introductions to our monkey friends.

You will learn about the monkey's past and hear their heartwarming stories of rescue to recovery. You will meet monkeys who will change your life and steal your heart.

You may meet Bongo, who was in iron-toxicity studies living species isolated in a small lab cage for decades. Bongo also suffered from paraplegia, but with the help of our "re-habitats" and the tender loving care of KC, Bongo's monkey friend, he can walk again!

Wendell lost his sight due to diabetes, but with his monkey friend Kuda by his side, he gets around just fine.

Puchi is another favorite, he was found running loose in Chicago only has one eye, but Puchi will look deep into your soul.

I am the founder of Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary and have worked with monkeys for over 25 years. The sanctuary grew from one "pet" monkey to over 300 rescued monkeys, most from laboratory research.

In 1993 I was an interior designer and volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused and neglected children in Las Vegas. A friend bought a baby monkey named Samantha and soon grew tired of her shenanigans – he gave the monkey to me. This gift changed the course of my life and inspired Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary.

In 1998 I purchased land in Gainesville, Florida, a more suitable climate where the monkeys could live an “Almost Wild” life.

Jungle Friends has been featured on National Geographic, Discovery, Animal Rescue, Anderson Live, ABC Primetime, CNN News, and other news programs and documentaries.

Super wonderful place, I was the only one that session, so got a personal tour! Got to feed the monkeys all kinds of treats, up close and personal, they would grab their peanuts with their tiny hands and do a dance. Most of them seemed very excited to greet us, and the hosts were wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable. Kari, who started the place over 20 years ago, even made us a vegan spaghetti lunch and we got to sit and chat. Highly recommended.

For anyone who cares about animals, getting to visit this sanctuary is a special treat. Seeing and hearing all the monkeys in this habitat where they can thrive and enjoy life and learning about their pasts that brought them to Jungle Friends really touches ones's heart. Kari and everyone else at Jungle Friends deserve our praise and support for the wonderful work they're doing for these monkeys.

The Magical Monkey Experience was extraordinary. Kari and her staff escorted us around the complex, telling the stories of many of the monkeys. So many came from research labs. Others did not work out as pets. Living at the sanctuary is wonderful for them. They are delightful creatures with individual personalities. If you love animals, you will love this place. Cost is higher than some attractions, but that is great, because it attracts people who truly care and are interested. The sanctuary also does national animal advocacy work. They also have an Airbnb on site.

I had no idea the varieties of monkeys we would meet, and the very personal stories that went with so many. Kari and the other workers are clearly dedicated to creating this unique sanctuary where these monkeys can live out their lives with caring comfort. I am inspired that such people step up to provide this environment.

Meer tips

The monkeys live in large "Almost Wild" padlocked habitats and are not free roaming. Your hosts will keep you safe during your tour. New World monkeys do not carry any viruses harmful to humans and you will not be interacting with the monkeys directly -- maybe a game of catch the monkey biscuit!
