Review for Pacific Primate Sanctuary, Inc., Haiku, HI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a resident Intern at PPS for the past year, and I have never encountered an animal care facility that puts forth the level of detailed care that this Sanctuary does. It is incredible to learn as much as we do about each species of primate, and to be responsible for so much of their care. I have become adept at recognizing the various vocalizations and behaviors of each monkey, preparing and distributing the specialized diets, and providing medical care when necessary. At this place of peace you truly learn what it takes to run a Sanctuary with the big picture in mind. It is a phenomenal feeling to help provide such a high quality of life to so many beings, especially when many of them have come from research facilities, the illegal pet trade, or tourist attractions. When you walk through the Corridor and see so many of the monkeys slob-flopping, a relaxed behavior that is rarely seen in captivity, you know that you’re helping out a spectacular mission.

Review for Pacific Primate Sanctuary, Inc., Haiku, HI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I chose to become an intern at Pacific Primate Sanctuary because of the mission they exemplify, and that I haven't seen anywhere else. PPS truly creates a place of peace for so many monkeys that never had that chance before. Our sole goal while providing care for these creatures is to give them a life as close to that as they can get in the wild. We treat these monkeys and all of nature around us as equals, and it's so clear how happy they all are. You can always find the monkeys laying out enjoying the sun on a warm day, and it's so validating when you remember that some of them came from research labs where they never got to climb on trees, and experience the sun's rays on their back while taking a nap. I hope this sanctuary continues doing their amazing work for many more years to come, so that monkeys can continue to be saved and provided such phenomenal care for.
