Progress Update for Monkey Village

Baboon Enclosure
Baboon Enclosure

We completed the expansion phase of four habitats in Monkey Village. The roof panels were removed from the top of each enclosure and used to increase the size of each habitat. Every habitat was doubled in size and topped with a metal roof. We added branches, shelves, hammocks, swings, toys and enrichment devices.

The final stage is to build new habitats for our four New World monkeys.  The last photo is the building site that we have cleared for the new construction.

We'll be sure to keep you updated on our future progress.

Thank you so much for your help!

Progress Report for Monkey Village

Old Habitat ( 10 ft. wide x 20 ft.  long x 7 ft. h

We're excited to announce that construction has started in Monkey Village. The first habitat constructed is for Nathan & Cinderee. Their previous habitat was 10 ft. wide x 20 ft. long x 7 ft. tall. Their new habitat is 20 ft. wide x 50 ft. long x 12 ft. high which includes 3 trees.

Their new habitat is complete as of today. We have spent approximately $5300.00 on this enclosure for framing and fencing alone. We still have to add inside enrichment structures and toys and Nathan & Cinderee will be released into their new habitat tonight.

Stay tuned! We will be sure to share photos and video of the primates being released and enjoying their new habitat later this week. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for more progress shots! www.facebook.com/keepersofthewildaz

 

Nathan (Pig-Tailed Macaque)
Nathan was sold by a Las Vegas pet store when he was one month old. He lived with his human family being raised like a child and dressed in children's clothes. KOTW received a call after the male owner passed away and  Nathan started asserting a dominant attitude. They were intimated and no longer wanted him. It took Nathan awhile to figure out that he was a monkey and a few years later, he was introduced to a rescued Bonnet macaque named “Cinderee".


Cinderee (Bonnet Macaque)
Cinderee was one of the 10 primates confiscated by Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Maricopa County, AZ. The primates were at a private home along with a large number of other animals, which were all being badly neglected by the owners. It was one of the worst hoarding cases in Arizona history.
