Joseph Grider


Joseph was born and raised in Lexington, KY and earned a Bachelors of Science degree from Eastern Kentucky University in 2020. Animals always held a special place in his heart, but it wasn’t until entering the Animal Studies program at EKU that he fully realized his passion for animal care and education. Joseph became an Intern at the PRC in 2019 and transitioned to a Volunteer position in 2020 when his internship was complete. Joseph joined the PRC staff in September 2022, and he is very excited for the opportunity to bring all the love and care possible to the PRC apes and monkeys.
