SAI Zoo Monkeys Share Mango Lunch
There is a lack of care among the Venezuelan population when it comes to the preservation of animals who are in danger of extinction.
This is most prevalent in public and private zoos and animal refuges in Venezuela. For example, SAI supports a refuge that is taking care of a family of endangered monkeys.
The population of our monkeys should have increased to 16, but the mother of the newborn died. A visitor tried to steal the newborn baby monkey and in the process harmed the mother resulting in her death.
Increase Security To Protect Rare Animals
This situation proves the necessity for increased security for the animals. We can utilize additional funding to enhance security at our facilities for zoo animals. We plan on helping the zoos with additional fences to protect the monkeys and surrounding wildlife.
With our program, we have had the joy of helping a variety of wild animals providing nutritious foods that improve the health of each one of them. Here are some of the zoo animals we are currently supporting:

SAI is A Guardian Angel
At SAI we want to sincerely thank you for helping us rescue these zoo animals. We also extend a huge thank you to A & G Animal Assistance Fund for providing substantial funding to rescue these endangered animals.
Many people claim that we are a “guardian angel” for abandoned zoo animals in Venezuela. We appreciate their kind words, but we know that people like you and A & G are the real heroes in this continuing crisis in Venezuela.
Your Generosity Is Saving These Animals
Our staff and volunteers are grateful because without your donations many of these rare creatures would simply die of starvation and disease. Due to your generosity, a beautiful array of zoo animals and reptiles are happy, well-nourished, and healthy!
