about us

Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary--the largest New World primate sanctuary in the U.S.--provides permanent, high-quality sanctuary care for monkeys who have been abused, confiscated by authorities, used in research, kept as ''pets'' or who are simply no longer wanted. We care for the individual medical, psychological and behavioral needs of these monkeys by protecting and providing them a safe, healthy and stimulating environment for life. We are actively engaged with our national and international animal welfare and advocacy partners, and we are GFAS accredited and an active member of NAPSA.

Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary, a registered 501c3, was incorporated in 1997 and is now home to 298 monkeys who live on 39 acres in Gainesville, Florida.
