Today the INTERNATIONAL MACAQUES DAY is celebrated to make known this primate species. More than 70 different species belong to this group and among them is the Barbary Macaque, one of the species currently rescued by MONA.
On the occasion of this day, we want to tell you the story of Titin, one of the Barbary macaques rescued by MONA.
If you are a partner, adopter, volunteer or a MONA collaborator, you are in luck! Serveis Panella has decided to join our MONASupport companies network offering a special service to MONA and all its friends.
Since its inauguration in 1985, Serveis Panella has become a reference mechanical workshop for the repair of commercial and industrial vehicles in the province of Girona and now, in 2017, it becomes a solidarity company with those who care and work tor the welfare of primates.
We are very grateful to Serveis Panella for their collaboration. The small family of MONA grows more and more and that brings us closer to our goal: a better future for primates.
We started this 2017 with great news! It seems that our wishes are fulfilled and more and more companies are joining our cause.
In this year, EVA SEEDS has decided to join our solidarity companies network which plant that small seed that causes the root to grow and break under ground. The buds, as Jane Goodall said, may appear small and weak, but they can pierce a concrete wall to reach the light. That is why we thank them, for wanting help us to reach that light: the protection and welfare for primates.
In this book, Javier Ruiz brings a good amount of information to address an issue that has often been treated too trivial and proposes a reflection, balanced and charged with a responsible ethical sense, to analyze our relationship with other animals and the consequences that our actions have on them, on the planet and on ourselves.
“We must know and be moved, we must be able to feel and live the pain of those around us.” This is just one of the wonderful reflections left by the prologue written by the DR. MIQUEL LLORENTE ESPINO, Director del Institut de Recerca i Estudis en Primatologia, Responsable de Investigación en Fundación Mona y Presidente de la Asociación Primatológica Española.

UNTAGGED is the first Digital Analytics and Big Data conference in Spain designed exclusively for experienced digital analysts. The event, organized by David Vallejo and Natzir Turrado, took place on November 9 at Google Campus Madrid and was totally free, non-profit and solidarity! It was proposed to the attendees to give what they thought it fitting to be for SAVECHILDREN and FUNDACIÓN MONA and … it was a success!
Thanks to the organizers and assistants for their solidarity and contribution to the welfare of the primates rescued by MONA. Thank you for demonstrating that step by step, one by one, a better future is possible.

Toni had not been the same for days; Apathetic, afflicted and with little appetite, he was having difficulties for eating. Something wasn’t right on he and we suspected that the problem was in his teeth. This theory was confirmed by Gerardo, the dentist, after a review. Just a few days later, Gerardo came to the Recovery Center to perform a more exhaustive check that finally ended up becoming a 2 hour intervention! Finally, and thanks to Gerardo, we were able to shed light on Toni’s problem: one of his teeth had broken off causing him an unpleasant and annoying infection.
The surprise came the next day when Toni woke up more cheerful than ever, playful and affectionate, even encouraging himself to eat carrots!
This improvement is due to him, Gerardo, who comes to our rescue whenever we need him. Africa, Toni, Tico and all the primates rescued by MONA are more than grateful for his care, attention and sensitivity.
Thank you Dr. Gerardo Ruales Suárez for improving the quality of life of our rescued primates!
