Another busy week here at Jungle Friends. We have been building habitats for monkeys retiring from entertainment and laboratory research. Also this week Kari got a call about a white face capuchin who needs a home. Please consider making a donation to help us help these monkeys in need. 

We are so happy to share with you that Wendell is recovering very nicely! Every day I am so inspired by his bravery and his strength to deal with whatever comes his way. Thank you to all our supporters for making the mission of Jungle Friends possible!  
Monkeys in the Media! 
If you did not already know, Jungle Friends was started in Las Vegas Nevada. In 1998 Kari moved the sanctuary to Gainesville Florida so the monkeys would have a better climate. Over the years Jungle Friends has expanded from the original 1 acre of land in Las Vegas to now over 40 acres in Gainesville. The monkey residents started with  Samantha and Charlotte and now 300 monkeys call Jungle Friends home! Read about the history of Jungle Friends. 

Jungle Friends is now the largest New World monkey sanctuary in the United States and is often in the media. 

The most recent news story is an article that was published in the Las Vegas Review Journal.

 Also recently, Jungle Friends was mentioned in an article about the top 10 animal sanctuary around the world worth supporting. Jungle Friends is one of two United States sanctuaries mentioned. 

It is always a reward when the sanctuary is mentioned in articles like these, it shows that our hard work to help these animals does not go unnoticed. 

Jungle Friends has been mentioned in the media numerous times. Many of our monkey rescues made the news and their stories have been featured in documentaries from National Geographic's Wild Chronicles (featuring Tessa) to Primetime, The Outsiders (featuring Andy). Check those story's out on our Monkeys in the Media page.
Coming Soon...
Several of the Jungle Friends monkeys, and their stories, will be featured in the documentary

P.S. All of the squirrel monkeys in Emerald City have settled into their new home at Jungle Friends! Last week the researcher that previously worked with them in the lab came to visit and she had tears of joy because of how well they are all doing. She mentioned that the monkeys were getting nice tans and were even gaining muscle!
