By The Associated Press

The state of Alaska filed a lawsuit Dec. 14 in an effort to stop a federal agency's plan to protect endangered sea lions by restricting fishing in the western Aleutian Islands. Gov.

Have Yourself a Monkey Little Christmas

Published 12/06/10

What a season-setter, our Grinch! He's one of six primates in our “Adopt a Primate” program, and with your $52 annual donation you can bring a lot of holiday cheer to Grinch and the hundreds of other rescued monkeys we care for at our Texas sanctuary.
