Review for Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary Inc, Gainesville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

Having just spent three days at Jungle Friends, I think you should know that it is one of the most extraordinary sanctuaries I have ever visited. The dedicated staff, mostly volunteers, takes care of more than 100 monkeys with enthusiasm and careful attention to detail. Director Kari Bagnal has tremendous spirit and knowledge--she's great with animals and people! Jungle Friends is a model primate sanctuary; I've never seen so many contented, calm monkeys and so many staffers loving their work. The place is pristine; the monkey habitats are spacious and inventive. I encourage everyone to support this place, which I hope expands to help more monkeys in need. There are so many!

I am hoping that their budget can grow. The director is attracting some of the best people in the field and they need salaries. The place could expand into surrounding land.
