Tour and Volunteer Opportunity with Primarily Primates
Friday, November 17 | 1:30 PM – 5:30 PM | $60 (includes a $10 donation to Primarily Primates)
Primarily Primates was founded in 1978, making it the first primate sanctuary in North America and the first to rescue chimpanzees requiring lifetime care following medical research. PPI’s devoted staff supports all dimensions of animal life from diet to medical care to social-behavior management. Staff perform daily animal assessments, including behavior & physical checkups, for illness prevention and social-behavior management.
What we will do: Primarily Primates does not offer tours to the public. However, they offer opportunities for visitors to volunteer with them, and a tour will be provided as part of the volunteer work.
What to wear and bring: Please wear good walking shoes and comfortable clothes that you do not mind getting dirty. The terrain we will be walking on is rocky, so a golf cart will be available for those who cannot walk long distances. Our hosts also recommend that we bring sunscreen and insect repellent, since November in San Antonio can be warm, sunny, and buggy
