Story Book Farm is launching a campaign to source the capital for a new sustainable structure.
Not unlike many other animal sanctuaries, Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary has limited space and resources. In addition to roadside zoos and the exotic pet trade, there are an estimated 6,412 primates used in research alone (Canadian Council on Animal Care [CCAC] 2017). The demand continues as we learn of other monkeys needing sanctuary - monkeys that are being kept inhumanely as pets, monkeys that are being bred for the exotic pet trade and, most recently,research monkeys. We have run out of space to take in more monkeys. So we’re planning to build a new, sustainable structure. Story Book Farm is launching a campaign to source the capital required to meet the increasing demand for sanctuary for primates in Canada rescued from roadside zoos,research labs, and Ikea parking lots.
