Stones & Waves Wildlife Sanctuary in Nicaragua

Jump to last reply

I hope this is an appropriate posting, but I just wanted to spread the word about the Stones & Waves Animal Sanctuary at Piedras y Olas/Pelican Eyes Hotel in SJDS.

After seeing some videos on YouTube of a couple monkeys chained up there, I wrote them an email asking about the situation. They seem like they are sincerely trying to help animals but are obviously struggling with limited resources.

Specifically, one of their projects is to build a primate enclosure that will allow a more normal life for the monkeys being rehabilitated (and which may never be able to be released). Right now, the monkeys have to be chained up, with pretty limited mobility. It's sad, though they're better off like this than abandoned and in danger.

Anyway, I thought I'd try to spread the word about this valuable project. They are trying to raise funds to create this enclosure (and it will cost a minimum of $25,000).

If you can donate even $5 or $10, I'm sure it would be appreciated.

You can check out info on the primate enclosure project here: http://bit.ly/32dn2U

The general Stones & Waves site is here: http://www.piedrasyolas.com/swvc_eng.htm

Thanks.
