We Couldn’t Care for the Primates Without You!
THANK YOU! BFUSA Team Members Answer the Call!
Last week was especially challenging at the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary (see monkeys in the snow!), where frigid conditions — from Tuesday evening through Friday morning, the temperature never rose above freezing! — made life uncomfortable for the monkeys. We asked you to help by pledging money, “adopting” primates and buying items from our wish list, including heaters. You came through like compassionate champs, and we are sincerely grateful. To be honest, we will continue to ask for donations. That’s the only way we can operate the sanctuary. But we wanted to take this opportunity to assure you that your support not only makes a difference, but it is appreciated.
BIG FREEZE, TAKE 2: We’re Not Through with Winter Yet
Although the weather warmed up to seasonable norms in south Texas over the weekend and early this week, the forecast for today and Friday signals a second cold snap: Daytime highs and nighttime lows are to be as much as 25 degrees below normal. At the sanctuary, we continue to add propane heaters, build small structures and haul lots of hay for extra bedding and wind protection. The Born Free USA crew is working hard to make conditions as benign as they can be for the 500-some primates who call the sanctuary home. If you haven’t done so already, please consider helping with a donation or by buying something from the “wish lists” on our website or on Amazon.com.
