About Suncoast Primate Sanctuary Foundation, Inc.

Location:

4600 Alt. 19, Palm Harbor, FL 34683, US

Mission Statement

The Suncoast Primate Sanctuary is a federally recognized non-profit 501c3 charitable organization dedicated not only to the care of various species of great apes and monkeys but, many exotic animals as well. This is their forever home and our guiding principles include, but are not limited to: Providing exemplary animal care including enrichment; educating the public about exotic animals, particularly non-human primates; and promoting conservation awareness.

Description

Prior to the sanctuary receiving its 501c3 status and incorporating in 2003, the animals housed on this property were here due to varying reasons, but they all needed a safe place to live.

Robert and Mae Noell purchased the sanctuary property in 1954. Over the course of the next 30 years, the couple received an influx of aged, ill, or otherwise unwanted primates and tirelessly cared for them.

With help from our community members- through financial donations and volunteering- the Sanctuary is able to maintain a special place for primates, educate the public about zoological and environmental issues, providing community service and educational internships.

There is always a need for volunteers at The Sanctuary. Animal caregiving, grounds maintenance, food prep, primate enclosure upgrades, fundraising, and grant writing, we would love your help!

All caregivers working with primates and exotic birds must be 18 years of age or older and commit to a minimum of 4 hours per week. Any opportunity for more hours is greatly encouraged and appreciated. All training will be provided by seasoned staff (Coordinators, Team Leaders).
