Board of Directors

The five individuals who comprise the Primate Rescue Center’s Board bring with them decades of experience with animal handling, business, finance, and ethics. Most importantly, each board member believes strongly in the PRC’s mission and helps strengthen the organization as a whole.

Sanctuary Staff

The Primate Rescue Center staff truly makes the sanctuary shine. From the grounds crew to the caregivers, our care team works day in and day out to ensure that sanctuary residents are happy, comfortable and well cared for. With backgrounds in psychology, biology, education, animal studies, and more, our staff’s talents provide a perfect mixture of expertise and passion to help primates.

Volunteers & Interns
The Primate Rescue Center is lucky to have a web of loyal volunteers, interns, and off-site participants across the country who assist with everything from daily tasks to special events. The veteran volunteers pictured on this page have been with the PRC for at least one year, but most have been with us for many more!
