There are many ways that you can help us in our mission to rescue primates suffering in captivity. Thanks to our supporters in the UK and Spain we have rescued many primates suffering in captivity but there are many more primates that still need our help.
Here is how you can get involved with us:

Adopt a chimpanzee
Come and join us at the sanctuary for a short-stay volunteering holiday
Are you looking for a short get away yet that will help chimpanzees at the same time. What about joining us at our sanctuary near Girona in Northern Spain for a volunteering holiday that will change your life and help us rescue more primates in need. We are offering a unique experience where guests gain a wonderful insight into the daily lives of our rescued primates. We are one of the only primate rescue centres outside of Africa where you get the unique opportunity to experience working with chimpanzees and our barbary macaques.
Long-term volunteer positions at our Sanctuary in Spain
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, consult the following web page:
