Adoption packages are available for $25, $52, or $100 per year, or become a Primate Sustainer with a monthly contribution of $10 or more. You can adopt Carly, Grinch, Khy, Nala, Friendly, or Mig (pictured to the right): a young female bonnet macaque who arrived at the sanctuary in 2006 after spending her entire life in a laboratory. Adopt today and give the gift of a brighter tomorrow!

Washington D.C. -- Tamae, a 12-year-old Japanese Macaque living at the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary in Dilley, Texas, was spotted swinging on the first day of spring at her favorite spot on the 186-acre facility, which provides a permanent home for 630 residents—many of whom were rescued from roadside zoos, research facilities, or private possession. The video can be seen at http://youtu.be/C_7g2cbJ4v4.
The Los Angeles City Council has unanimously voted to ban traps that snare or grip coyotes, bears, foxes, and other animals. Any trap "that maims or causes the inhumane death or suffering of any animal" will be banned.
