International Primate Rescue started life as the Marmoset Welfare Foundation in March 1996 in Polokwane, South Africa, where founder Sue Mousley had been caring for primates since 1990. Fascinated by the strange and unstable behaviour patterns of a Common Marmoset monkey named “Meggie”, she was prompted to study behavioural problems and other disorders in captive and/or orphaned nonhuman primates.

The sanctuary, the first of its kind in South Africa, received its first monkey, an eight-month old Common Marmoset named “Cheeky”, in April 1996. After a report on national TV in South Africa, the sanctuary was inundated with requests to receive problem monkeys. In 1998, the sanctuary was offered a very disturbed Bolivian Squirrel monkey, and 15 month old Bobby, who is still a resident at the sanctuary, became the first primate other than a Marmoset to be cared for at the International Primate Rescue. By September 2001 Sue and the primates were obliged to relocate to a larger property in order to accommodate the swelling numbers of primates in need. In Israel; Iris, a Patas monkey became the first international rescue case and was flown from Israel to the sanctuary in South Africa in February 2002. The rescue was widely reported, and IPR has since received numerous requests to assist in international rescues. The sanctuary has since received primates in need from as far afield as Mali, Germany, Hungary and Israel.

The sanctuary, which relocated from Polokwane to Pretoria, South Africa in 2010 currently cares for over 100 primates, including Marmosets, Tamarins, Capuchins, Macaques, Squirrel Monkeys, Mona Monkeys, Patas Monkeys and Grey Mouse Lemurs. Many are hand reared ex-pets who arrive with behavioural problems and require rehabilitation from psychological disorders. The sanctuary houses exotic primates, who are unable to be returned to the wild, and therefore our time and focus is aimed at ensuring all enclosures are as suitable and comfortable for each individual as possible. The demand for this service is growing relentlessly; we receive a constant stream of requests to rescue homeless primates in South Africa and abroad. Through this, the sanctuary is expanding on a daily basis in order to keep up with the demand.

Long term volunteers are required to stay for a minimum of one year and do not pay the fee required by short termers. This is not a paid position but your board and lodging is included for free in exchange for your work. Long term volunteers will receive a food allowance so that they can buy their preferred food themselves. Long term volunteer positions are very sought after and we cannot guarantee that there will be space for you. You are very much more likely to be accepted as a long term volunteer if you have visited our sanctuary as a short term volunteer, so this is something to bear in mind. Long term volunteers have specific roles and more responsibilities than the short term volunteers. At least three of our previous long term volunteers have found their dream positions, or gone on to qualify as vets, etc. The experience you gain working with our primates for the duration of your year-long visit is a great CV booster.

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op O.R. Tambo International Airport
If you have asked us to arrange an airport pick up, our driver will meet you at Johannesburg airport. The trip to the sanctuary takes about 45 min to an hour. If you arrive during the day, our driver will take you food shopping on the way.
When you arrive you will see that your accommodation is right in the middle of the sanctuary, so we can give you a tour straight away and introduce you to all the monkeys. Or if you are too tired you can relax and shower and we will show you around later. The rest of the day you can relax and unpack or get to know the monkeys.
The following morning work will start at 9:00 and one of our staff will take you under their wing.
The airport pick-up will be paid seperately.
Accomodatie

Dorm rooms are very basic and can accommodate a maximum of 14 people in one dorm. 

Beds are bunk beds and we will provide sheets, pillow and duvet.

There are 2 indoor toilets and 1 shower, with a further (enclosed) shower and toilet on the grounds outside, we also provide towels for your use. 

We have a volunteer kitchen for your use and groups tend to go on shopping trips every week or so to buy food. During peak periods we open a small shop on site for you to buy your essentials.

Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten. Eten, tussendoortjes en drankjes zijn bijkomende kosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Zuid-Afrika.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Zuid-Afrika biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Zuid-Afrika dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Zuid-Afrika.
