Jungle Friends Sanctuary Receiving Endangered Monkeys
ALACHUA COUNTY-- It didn't take long to add more monkeys to a sanctuary that just got permission to expand.
The Alachua County Commission approved the super- sized Jungle Friends Sanctuary just last night.
They have taken in twenty new monkeys and many more are on the way.
Jungle Friends Sanctuary has been a monkey safe haven for fifteen years in northwest Alachua county.
In a unanimous vote last night by the county commission the sanctuary received the ok to expand an additional 34 acres for new monkeys.
The sanctuary will receive one hundred critically endangered monkeys this week alone, from a lab they will not identify.
All of the monkeys the sanctuary have received are seeing the sunlight for the first time.
One of the complaints in the past against the expansion was a possible issue with noise.
But no one spoke out about it at last nights meeting.
The people at the sanctuary say they will receive many more monkeys in the near future.
