March 24, 2015
We are pleased to announce the last group of 33 cotton-top tamarins, retiring from a primate research lab that is closing its doors, will be arriving in April.

These monkeys are from the same study as the group of cotton-tops we received last June. Our staff is busy preparing their new home here at Jungle Friends. Check out our photo album highlighting the construction of CottonTopolis.


As research subjects, these beautiful monkeys are assigned numbers - not names. Stay tuned to upcoming Jungle News posts as we share opportunities for you to name our new arrivals!

We're also working hard to retire 8 capuchin monkeys from another university research lab. Please help us get these monkeys out of the lab by donating to our Research Retirement Fund.

Sponsor Safari is April 18th 


Invitations have been mailed to all of our wonderful Monkey Sponsors for this exclusive sponsors-only event.  


If you're a Monkey Sponsor and plan to attend Sponsor Safari, you can RSVP online. Please provide your name, email address, phone number and any guests you'll be bringing with you.


We also have Sponsor Safari t-shirts available for a minimum donation of $20 per shirt if picked up from Jungle Friends or we can ship your order for a minimum donation of $25 per shirt.   




We look forward to spending an afternoon with all of our Monkey Sponsors at Sponsor Safari!!

Don't forget, YOU could Win A Trip For Two aboard our FUNdraising cruise! Everyone who has sponsored a monkey will have their name automatically entered into a drawing for the Monkey Cruise to be held at Sponsor Safari on April 18. Although we hope all of our monkey sponsors will be at the event, you do not have to be present to win. Opportunities to purchase additional raffle tickets for entry into the drawing will be available exclusively to those in attendance at Sponsor Safari.
