Storm Damage from Hurricane Irma and How You Can Help us Prepare for the Next Storm...
Regrade Driveway to Van Clan Conference Center - $8,000
The storm created a sink hole at our main entrance! The DOT will fix that this week, but the road to our Conference Center was eroded and washed out.
An asphalt drive is needed.
Large Double Door: Van Clan Conference Center - $2,594
The Conference Center provided a secure shelter for the monkeys during the storm. However, the larger rolling cages did not fit through the existing door.
We need a bigger door!
Concrete Slabs: Bob Barker Medical Clinic & Van Clan Conference Center - $1,840
This will allow us to move the cages inside and out more easily with an area to clean the cages. This will also allow us to move the monkeys outside for fresh air.
Thank You Dorothy!
During the last hurricane season we did not have a generator for our Bob Barker Medical Clinic, due to the generosity of Dorothy Garwick we have a top-of-the-line generator for this hurricane season and what a difference this has made. Hats off to Dorothy!
Thank You North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance and Chimp Haven!
Awbrea, Chimp Haven Caregiver
Robyn, Chimp Haven Caregiver
After hearing that Hurricane Maria was approaching, we spoke with Erika Fleury, Program Manager of NAPSA, about our challenges. Erika reached out to our primate sanctuary community and we are delighted to announce that Awbrea and Robyn, Chimp Haven caregivers, arrived at Jungle Friends last Tuesday to help us in case Hurricane Maria arrived and help us recover from Hurricane Irma, they will be here for a week!
A special thanks to all those that made this possible and of course to our visitors from Chimp Haven!
Murphy Brown spent her inside time drawing.
Lots of monkey love!
From all of the monkeys
and all of the humans
at Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary!
