The Team

“We are people that believe in what we do, committed to the protection and welfare of primates”

 

Our team consists of workers and volunteers who identify with the values of the organization and are committed to the protection and welfare of primates. We are a multidisciplinary, motivated and professional team. Since our early days we have integrated using protocols and working methods that have allowed us to be one of the few places worldwide that is fighting for primates’ survival on all necessary fronts. Excellent care is given to the rescued animals.
