The Pacific Primate Sanctuary plays an extremely important role in the rescue and support of countless primates from laboratory "prisons" where they had undergone brutalizing tortures under the name of "research" ~ and they are helping to propagate many species who might have gone extinct without ther intervention.
Lucy Wormser and her staff are angels sent from Heaven for their loving and undying treatment of these little creatures. Thank you to each and every one of them. They are a blessing not only to the primates, but to all of humanity.
Pacific Primate Sanctury is a beautifully established and run retreat which nurtures many primates that have been abused and neglected by uncaring places. They are nourished and loved into new health; continually cared for in a superior way by dedicated people.
Pacific Primate Sanctuary is a nonprofit wildlife conservation organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of threatened, endangered, and distressed primates. Since 1984, the Sanctuary has maintained a federally authorized facility for threatened New World monkeys, many of which have been donated from research laboratories and rescued from the illegal exotic pet trade. PPS provides refuge and rehabilitation, creating naturalistic habitats where displaced primates can recover and form social groups. Pacific Primate Sanctuary is an entirely volunteer operated organization and depends on donations. Please visit the website: http://www.pacificprimate.org/ and Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PacificPrimateSanctuary to make a donation or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for other ways to help.
"On all inspection visits, the facility has met or exceeded all standards set by the USDA. The knowledge and compassion for the animals are abundantly evident in the excellent care provided for them." - Dr. Lyons, USDA Inspecting Veterinary Officer (for 25 years)
This Sanctuary currently is home to many species of primates. Currently there are 4 interns and one Manager on staff. All help is volunteer and the food is mostly donated. A solar system was recently installed and they could use some funds to help pay for that but it will greatly cut down on the electric bills.
As a volunteer, I help prep food and clean enclosures. The monkeys are not on display to the public and live peacefully with superb care from everyone involved. The property includes an organic garden to help produce fresh, healthy food for animals and interns. I knew very little about this organization when I signed on to volunteer and am impressed with the professional demeanor of the staff and the wonderful care given to the animals.
