Fresh Volunteer Faces!

Melanie Parker February 18, 2016

We’re happy to announce and welcome 4 new volunteers to the PRC’s On-Site Animal Care Volunteer Team!

Mari Schroeder, a Dietetics major at the University of Kentucky, began volunteering with us in October 2015.

Samantha Thomas, who earned her Bachelor’s degree in Biology/Chemistry from the University of Indianapolis, began volunteering with the PRC in November 2015.

Victoria Turbyfill, a Zoo and Conservation Science major from Otterbein University, joined the volunteer team in December 2015. Victoria was with us for 8 weeks, and will return in the summer to continue volunteering.

Michelle Meeker, a Biology major at Bluegrass Community and Technical College, began volunteering at the PRC in January 2016.

We are so thrilled to have these girls become a part of the On-Site Animal Care Volunteer Program, and look forward to seeing them each week.

Our On-Site Animal Care Volunteers are a vital part of our daily routine at the sanctuary, assisting care staff with food preparation, enrichment, and cleaning. Volunteers have the opportunity to observe primate behavior, interact with primates from a safe distance, and gain the satisfaction of knowing they are improving the lives of chimps and monkeys! If you are interested in applying for a volunteer position at the Primate Rescue Center, I encourage you to check out the Volunteering Options on our website.
