Over the years, Jungle Friends has been asked to take in hundreds of monkeys from research laboratories. Many of these monkeys were born in the wild, captured for research, and lived for decades in small cages. Others were born in captivity and have never been outside. They have sacrificed for research that benefits humans, and we beleive in giving them a life as close to natural as possible for the remainder of their days.
