by Tim Ajax, Director
Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary
Some people monkey around a little, some people monkey around a lot, and then there's Tim. He's a prince among primates, presiding over hundreds of fellow bipeds in the often-brutal Texas outdoors. There's no ape escape for Tim and his crew, but no matter. They love to help macaques, baboons and vervets live out their lives with as much freedom as possible. And like peeling a banana, Tim's blogs take you to the good stuff inside — with a steady supplement of Texas weather updates, of course!
From Animal Issues, Volume 34 Number 3, Fall 2003
Some major changes have occurred in Dilley, Texas, home of API's sanctuary for nonhuman primates. In addition to the appointment of Ned C. Buyukmihci, DVM to the position of Director, the haven also has a new name, and is now called the Animal Protection Institute Primate Sanctuary. Both of these changes reflect our commitment to providing the best possible care to the animals that live at the sanctuary.
