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. Kari, the Founder of Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary, Sara, Kari's assistant who has been with the sanctuary since 2001, Bri, with us since 2012 and the Sanctuary Manager, and/or Jennifer, long-time supporter and volunteer since 2001, will make the introductions to our monkey friends. You will learn about the monkey's past and hear their heartwarming stories of rescue to recovery. You will meet monkeys who will change your life and steal your heart. You may meet Bongo, who was in iron-toxicity studies living species isolated 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 Kuda 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.

Release of liability form
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.
