RAINFER-PRIMATES RESCUE & CONSERVATION CENTRE - ALCOBENDAS, Spain - (click for project page)
Every year, countless numbers of primates are taken by humans from their natural habitat, or are bred in captivity with the aim of gaining profit. They are taken from their social group at a young age with the objective of selling them as pets, or exploiting them for show (circuses, films, publicity, etc.)
Rainfer gives these primates a second chance. Our goal is to rescue, rehabilitate and introduce these primates into an appropriate social group, where they can live in environmentally, and naturalised enclosures. Here, they are positively stimulated, learn from their peers how to freely display natural behaviours and strive to be happy. We give home and hope to more than 130 primates.
