Volunteers assist in the daily running of the Sanctuary as well as the rehabilitation program. Caring for animals requires patience, compassion and a calm demeanor. Volunteers should have a love of animals, particularly primates, a passion for nature, and a desire to protect and preserve our natural heritage. The physical aspects are not overly challenging, but a reasonable level of fitness is recommended. The Sanctuary is built on a slope and the weather can be hot and humid. A positive attitude, willingness to help and learn and a sense of humor are essential - volunteers should expect to be dirty and exhausted by the end of the day!
