In our rehabilitation center, abused chimpanzees and macaques are recovering from their previous lives as circus artists, television actors, and even pets. Many of them spent years living in solitude under terrifyingly inhumane conditions. MONA gives these primates a second chance at a life free of pain and abuse. We provide our primates a curative, nurturing, and restorative environment in a group of their own kind within a spacious and natural installation. We strive to give them the type of life they should have had in the wild, giving them back their dignity they so much deserve.
We try to share our work with the public, because we know that the problems these species face (extinction, wildlife trafficking, abuse on behalf of the entertainment industry, etc.), can be solved by raising awareness about the necessity to protect nature and our closest evolutionary relatives.
Make a reservation and come to meet our rescued chimpanzees and macaques and their particular histories and learn what characteristics of these species, their habits, how it develops its day MONA and its current status in nature.
