“The primates who now call the WRR sanctuary home have all come from situations where they were never allowed to live in the outdoors. Most have been rescued from laboratories where they were subjected to various experiments and confined in lab cages. Others have been saved from the solitary life of the so-called ‘pet’ monkey or the horrors of roadside zoos where they were viewed as little more than ‘an attraction’ to bring in gate fees. Every primate in our care lives outdoors with other monkeys. Though their lives are not as free as they would be in the wild, here they are never named, tamed or exploited; instead they are allowed the company of their own kind in a tree-studded and spacious enclosure.”
