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!
