International Primate Rescue

We rescue and/or give a forever home to ex lab and zoo primates from different parts of the world, along with primates from the pet trade.

About the Project

Our mission at the International Primate Rescue is to free unwanted primates from their suffering and to provide the best possible standard of care for them at our sanctuary. We take care of primates that have either been orphaned or have been born and raised in a zoo or at a laboratory and thus have to deal with behavioral problems and require rehabilitation from psychological disorders. At the International Primate Rescue, we also strive to discourage, provide help, raise awareness and educate people that wish to, or already own a primate. Our target is to develop a near wild experience for our primates and eventually make the facilities available to help any apes in need within the future. We currently care for over 100 primates, including Marmosets, Tamarins, Capuchins, Macaques, Squirrel Monkeys, Mona Monkeys, Patas Monkeys and Grey Mouse Lemurs and the demand for this service is growing relentlessly.

Social Impact

At the International Primate Rescue we have over 100 primates in our care, from Mona monkeys to marmosets. We strive to educate the public about the negative impact of keeping primates as pets as well as to rehabilitate primates that have been living in barbarous conditions and care for them at our sanctuary.
