TCI for Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary
Terra Conservation Initiative (/tci/)
Born Free USA manages the largest primate sanctuary in the United States. The 175-acre sanctuary, located in south Texas, provides a safe, permanent home to more than 450 rescued monkeys. The Born Free USA facility is unique among U.S. sanctuaries in that it is one of the very few to provide large, multi-acre, free-ranging environments that allow the majority of the monkeys to live as natural a life as possible and with minimal human interference.
Your contributions will help replace aging trucks with light electric utility vehicles which will help sanctuary staff navigate the multi-acre facility. Further, your help will decrease Born Free USA’s expenses for years to come because these electric vehicles and container farms will save money every year, year after year.
Sadly, while Born Free USA is committed to sustainable solutions and in desperate need to replace its aging vehicles, COVID 19 implications and daily operational funding required to care for the monkeys left those plans on the back burner. Now these technologies are even more critical, since repairs and procuring fuel require staff to leave the sanctuary property, potentially exposing staff and primates to Covid 19.
Help TCI support Born Free USA, so that their primates continue to be protected, and their efforts sustained far into the future.
