The goal of our adoption program is to provide an opportunity for contributors to familiarize themselves with the monkeys on an individual level. Your support enables us to better care for adopted monkeys, further develop our community education and behavioral research programs, and improve our facilities thereby making it possible to extend sanctuary to more primates in need. In return you can learn about the Conservancy's non-human inhabitants and feel a sense of personal responsibility for their care. When you adopt, you will receive: a color photo of your selected monkey, and a subscription to our newsletter. For adoptions over the one hundred dollar level you will also receive a guided tour of Monkey Jungle and the DuMond Conservancy with a primatologist.
