Fundación MONA is a primate rescue, rehabilitation and conservation centre based in Northern Spain and we will be opening our doors to visitors for a special weekend fun and education on the 6th and 7th of October.
Our aim across the weekend is to engage and educate people of all ages about the ongoing plight of wild animals (and specifically primates) being kept in captivity.
We will have something for everyone - from face painting and animal enrichment workshops for children through to bite-sized seminars on primatology and wine tasting for adults...
The overall message for the two days is a serious one - We have 14 Chimpanzees and 4 Barbary Macaques on-site and there are still several cases of captive primates in Spain that require our urgent attention.
As we offer lifetime care for our growing 'family' we are in the early stages of an essential relocation and expansion project and this will be the focus of our fundraising efforts over the next 18 months.
The event will be taking place close to the city of Girona, Northern Spain and for a small entrance fee visitors will have access to all of the activities, a host of local food vendors, a wealth of unique products to purchase and guided tours to come face-to-face with our chimpanzees.
