Pacific Primate Sanctuary is a unique organization being completely run by individuals who give their time and energy for the benefit of the animals in their care. It has been a privilege to be associated with this group of dedicated persons. The focus on continual learning, development of improved protocols and training has made the experience of working with the animals at Pacific Primate Sanctuary, a formative and important part of the growth of the volunteer and intern family. They are there to serve the Monkeys and do so with focused attention every day. Pacific Primate Sanctuary is truly a rare example of selfless giving in a world that is overwhelmed and controlled by self-interest. I encourage everyone who understands this peril to give to this organization in any way you can.
The destruction of our environment continues and the role of humans is undeniable. Here at Pacific Primate Sanctuary is an island of hope and positive action toward a better world. Thank you to Lucy and Erin who are the guiding force in this effort. You do it with compassion and determination, always for the monkeys.
It has been a privilege to be involved with Pacific Primate Sanctuary. As a member of the Board I am able to see how this organization benefits both the Primates they serve and they volunteer staff and interns that keep all aspects of the sanctuary running smoothly. I applaud all the past and present members of this organization who have given so much to make Pacific Primate Sanctuary a place of refuge for all the animals it serves. It is truly a model of how compassion and caring can create a positive impact. I encourage anyone who can contribute to Pacific Primate Sanctuary's work, physically or financially to do so knowing their contribution is directly benefiting the animals and furthering this important work. Blessings on Pacific Primate Sanctuary.
I have been a consulting veterinarian for Pacific Primate Sanctuary since the late 1990's. I have seen their dedication to building and maintaining a state-of-the-art facility to care for these threatened and endangered species of New World non-human primates. The program has grown considerably as the need for a sanctuary for these species has continued to grow. They provide optimal nutrition and husbandry for these animals. They have a growing educational program which not only trains primatologists but their outreach teaches the general public about nonhuman primates, ecology and conservation. Their medical care is top-notch for the animals. They keep extremely detained observations and records on the animals, and the overall facility goes far beyond what the regulations require. They are a model animal sanctuary in all aspects.
I have had the privilege of working with the Sanctuary for over 15 years in a consulting role concerning the health of the monkeys. The facility is exemplary and its nutrition, husbandry, and preventive health program as well as any necessary health care are far beyond what zoos can do for their animals. Their animals live to old age in a beautiful habitat where their physical and mental needs are met. The Sanctuary program is visionary for these animals. Lucy Wormser as Director has established a fabulous program and facility.
I am a Board Member of PPS, and I am constantly astounded at how caring and selfless every single person involved with this wonderful organization is!
A truly great nonprofit organization that provides unconditional love and care to primates in need.
I have volunteered for the Pacific Primate Sanctuary for the last seven years, and have seen first hand what a model non-profit this organization is. Everyone at the sanctuary's sole focus is to care for and rehabilitate these precious primates.
I've followed the progress of PPS since its inception. It is a force for the good as it protects and rehabilitates primates by providing top notch care and a rare ingredient: sanctuary.
PPS is a gift to the community and the world. It embodies the compassion and care for all creation that imbues all religious and humanistic traditions. The founder and all the volunteers are incredibly dedicated and skilled. PPS is a bright light in our troubled world.
Fantastic, caring and detailed personnell who truly care and give selflessly and tirelessly to relieving animal suffering and providing a place of refuge and healing.
I am blessed to be apart of the PPS Ohana! Being a resident intern has forever impacted my life in a positive light. All the tiny angelic monkeys that are lucky enough to live at PPS are taken care of with such love and respect, and I am so happy to be apart of it. PPS is not just a sanctuary, it's love, harmony, peace and home ❤
I began my journey at this organization about 4 months ago and it has truly exceeded my expectations! The monkeys at PPS are taken care of with such love and compassion; you can tell that they are comfortable, and happy. The values at PPS continue to be held and highest standards by the numerous management, interns, and volunteers that donate their time to the needs of each unique monkey. Being part of the Pacific Primate Sanctuary has been a true blessing.
I have been interning with Pacific Primate Sanctuary for just over a month now and I couldn't be happier. I chose this internship because it was a great learning opportunity. The sanctuary holds the knowledge of 30 years of experience from past and present volunteers and interns and I am happy to add to this collaboration. The focus of PPS is truly the monkeys and their wellbeing. We learn how to listen to their needs and read their signs in order to provide the best possible care for them. Each individual is treated and loved equally here and I am happy to be a part of the team.
I am a resident intern here at Pacific Primate Sanctuary. This sanctuary is a place for the animals that are in our care to find true peace, to be able to live their lives of just being monkies, climbing, foraging, socialising, feeling the sunlight on their fur, freedom!
I am proud to be a part of this amazing organisation and to believe that "All beings are equally sacred."
I volunteer at the PPS because I can help to contribute to the quality of life for the primates there. I garden on the property to grow organic vegetables for the primates and help to harvest from their orchards so all the monkeys have a supply of fresh food. The other volunteers that work directly with the monkeys are so caring and attentive to each of the animals. They take such great care of everyone of the monkeys. Pacific Primate Sanctuary holds a dear place in my heart and I will continue to support them in anyway I can for as long as I can.
