The lemurs at WRR receive diets that consist of a variety of foods balanced to provide 40% fruit, 50% vegetables and 10% nutritional supplements. On Monday and Friday, eggs and insects are added.
Elderly Capuchins who reside at the WRR sanctuary are given a varied diet consisting of 60% fruits and 30% vegetables. Because they are less agile than the younger primates, their food is cut into grape-size pieces. On Monday and Friday, eggs are added. On Wednesday, insects are added.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
