The Mona Foundation depends heavily on volunteer helpers to continue its work. Volunteers are responsible for many of the tasks involved in the day-to-day care of primates at our sanctuary. We ask for a mínimum commitment of six months and in exchange for your time and dedication, we offer volunteers a truly unique opportunity and training as a captive primate carer. Our sanctuary is one of few, if not the only one, to offer volunteers with no prior experience in this field, such an opportunity. Thanks to this, our volunteers are well equipped with basic and practical primate husbandry knowledge.
So get involved and help us care for our primates. For information on volunteer requirements and specific conditions at our sanctuary please email us at a.gomara@fundaciomona.org
