October 6, 2008 - World Animal Day and Monkey Art Exhibit

Dear Friends of Jungle Friends,

World Animal DayWorld Animal Day was a wonderful success for the sanctuary!

We were delighted to welcome our new friends from Florida Voices for Animals to the sanctuary.

Volunteers from Florida Voices for Animals

The FVA crew journeyed from Tampa to spend the day

painting our new squirrel monkey building

constructing the new outdoor habitat for the squirrel monkeys

and making rope ladders for the capuchins!

Animal Activists of Alachua, a University of Florida organization, were also on the scene

constructing a new capuchin habitat

making monkey runways

and chopping produce.

After several hours of hard work, we all gathered to enjoy a vegan feast.

The Jungle Friends carestaff, interns and especially the monkeys want to thank everyone who participated in our 1st Annual Celebration of World Animal Day!

Lots of monkey love,
Kari and the monks
