Transportation – Volunteers will need to have transportation to the farm as it is in the countryside. Many people commute regularly from surrounding cities so we can try to accommodate your needs if necessary.
Contact – There is no free contact with the monkeys at the farm. They all live in enclosures and are not here to cuddle with us. We respect their space and only interact with them on their terms through the bars to provide enrichment and comfort for them.
Zoonoses – Consider your comfort level. Working with primates carries a heightened risk of zoonotic disease transfer due to our similar genetic relationship. Due to this, we utilize many biosecurity measures at the farm, and you will need to be trained on these preventative measures and risks before volunteering with us.
Age – We welcome people of all ages, high school and up! Many high school students come to do their hours with us, and love it so much they stay as long as they can!
Physical labour – It’s a farm, so get ready to work hard and get dirty! On-farm tasks include everything from cleaning enclosures, lifting heavy loads, making monkey dinners, building structures, creating enrichment, and other farm tasks!
Behind the scenes – Many of our volunteers do work off-site. These include staffing events, marketing and promotions, newsletter and website work, donor and sponsorship recruitment, program management and other administrative tasks. If these are skills or interests of yours, don’t hesitate to contact us!
If you are interested in volunteering with us, in any capacity (animal care, board member, fundraising, marketing, skilled labour - see 'How You Can Help'), please fill out the following information and we will be in touch!
Upon applying, if accepted, you will be invited to attend a volunteer orientation prior to joining our team. These orientations only occur once a month and you must attend one before beginning.
We periodically hold volunteer orientation sessions - see the Events page for details.
If your request of interest to volunteer has been approved, please download, fill in and sign the attached Volunteer Liability Agreement and Waiver forms and bring them with you on your orientation visit to the farm. The Volunteer information form can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
