Our Biggest Rescue Begins!
On Wednesday, July 25, 2012, the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary in south Texas received the first 10 of more than 100 monkeys (and one baboon) it is rescuing from the bankrupt Wild Animal Orphanage in San Antonio. The 10 stump-tailed macaques moved on this day all were rescued from the WAO from research facilities. They will live the rest of their lives as naturally as possible in the spacious Born Free USA sanctuary. Born Free USA is a leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation with campaigns against animals in entertainment, exotic "pets," trapping and fur, and the wildlife trade. The Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary provides a safe, permanent home for more than 500 nonhuman primates, many of whom were rescued from abusive situations in research facilities, roadside zoos, or private possession. Our mission is to "Keep Wildlife in the Wild."
