County Commisioners and the Alachua County Fair: 

Help us make a change! Please call or email the Alachua County Commissioners and ask them to put policies in place preventing exotic animal shows at the county fair. Let's make sure Banana Derby stays out of our community. Read more about this in our Jungle News post!

Dez Bryant's "new best friend": 

On October 21st the photo below was posted on Kari's Facebook page with the caption "My new best friend.... Dallas Bryant world".
On November 4th Founder and Executive Director of Jungle Friends, Kari Bagnall, spoke on 94Wip about the monkey, you can listen to the radio show here. Jungle Friends is willing to provide a forever home for this monkey with Mr. Bryant's permission. Monkers, a brown capuchin that lives here at the sanctuary has been a surrogate mom to 4 babies. If Jungle Friends were to rescue this monkey he would be put with Monkers to be raised properly.
