Project Monkey Island: Help needed!
Please join us in helping Puerto Rico's devastated families rebuild their community while helping them reconstruct the desperately needed infrastructure on 'Monkey Island' - a tiny island off Puerto Rico's eastern shore and home to over 1,500 free-roaming rhesus monkeys that has been a crucial site for scholars all over the world to study their behaviours since 1938! With the docks destroyed, countless trips to the island is the only way to get hundreds of pounds of food to the monkeys everyday because the small motor boat only holds a few bags of food at a time.
These daily efforts include clearing the island of debris and rebuilding the fresh water collection systems. All this consumes the day, slowing everyone's progress in rebuilding their own homes to a crawl. They need our help! So please visit www.projectmonkeyisland.org to find out how you can help - donate, volunteer, or sponsor a giving package.
