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. Your hosts, Kari, Jen, Sara and/or Bri, will introduce you to our monkey friends. You will learn about their past and hear their heartwarming stories of rescue to recovery. You will meet monkeys who will change your life and steal your heart. We will take a break midway through the tour for snacks and answer your questions and give you insights into the sanctuary world, the Jungle Friends culture and share amazing stories of the monkeys who call Jungle Friends home. You may meet Bongo, who was in iron-toxicity studies living alone 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 Kooda 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.

First stop, a visit to "Munchkinland", home to our tamarins and marmosets, the smallest monkeys in the world. Next stop "Kansas" where you will meet many different species of capuchin and spider monkeys. Then on to "Emerald City" to meet our amazing squirrel monkeys...are you sensing a theme :-)?! We finish up with a trip around "Oz", our bachelor pad. On the way back, we will stop at Bob Barker's Magical Manor, our on-site veterinary clinic.

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"!
