A truly enlightening experience
2019年7月
我在庇护所度过了4个星期,与猴子度过了最令人难以置信的时光,并喜欢了解他们所有的独特个性。我对苏,,保拉和克雷格这些庇护所一无所知,无论是对所有志愿者有多么热情,让他们有宾至如归的感觉,还是他们坚持不懈地确保每只动物的身心健康。关心。作为一名短期志愿者,您需要与长期志愿者配对,例如补充食物,每周早期喂食,定期清洁围栏以及保护区周围的一般维护。虽然工作很难,但它带来的满足和内在的奖励却是非常令人满意的。当他们在黎明时分醒来为需要他们的灵长类动物提供药物和补品并定期检查他们的进展以确保所有灵长类动物都快乐和健康时,那些在庇护所跑步和志愿者的激情是显而易见的。 。灵长类动物的福利是庇护所一切的最前沿,无论是扩大围栏,将猴子一起引入,还是确保每个灵长类动物都能以可持续的饮食来保持身体健康。即使在我相对短暂的停留期间,我目睹了斯坦福,一只恒河猕猴,被引入更大的围栏,改变了他的整体风度和生活质量。许多前宠物灵长类动物都喜欢人与人之间的互动,并且我以安全和恭敬的方式向我展示了如何做到这一点。 另一方面,一篇负面评论暗示灵长类动物饮食不良和不卫生的围栏。这不可能是事实;粥里装满了许多适合不同灵长类动物的补品,每天都有各种水果和蔬菜。对于食物制作的规范和准确程度,我非常吃惊。灵长类动物每天给予一次适当的治疗作为一种保持体重的方法。如果每个外壳变得比平时更脏,它们会定期清洁并且经过彻底清洁。除了南非冬季的寒冷之外,我对经历一无所知,只有积极的事情,许多灵长类动物的高水平护理反映出他们的预期寿命。我不能推荐足够的!

我来志愿者只用了两个多星期。至于大约100只猴子和它们所关心的所有动物(拯救猫,狗,鹦鹉,鸽子,狐狸,夜行动物等),它们都是王道。在第4天的第一次饲料。 30,最后一次检查,他们在晚上7点在床上,白天多次检查,这些猴子被宠爱。对于丛林婴儿来说,食物切成微小的大小,然后对于mar猴而言要稍微大一点,而对于卷尾猴而言,所有的食物都是每天准备好的,并且保存在冰箱中,随时准备随着白天的顶部分配。所有碗都经过漂洗和清洗,每周1-2次用新的毛毯清洗笼子。业主对动物和灵长类动物充满热情,长期志愿者也是如此。 如前所述,对于志愿者来说,这是非常基本的生活,所以请准备好在多个高峰时段分享多个卧室,多个Mossi叮咬(带香茅,咬奶油等),晚上不要外出作为危险和孤立的位置。所以你早睡早起就放松了。 。 。 。即晚上8点到9点,但你调整并发现自己在早上7点左右徘徊,我不会在家里。 邻居运行游览,但除非你可以与其他人一起去,即至少3,它可能是昂贵的价格看图片。他还经营着一项特别的出租车服务,其中包括每次往返机场的接机和送机服务,以及距离一英里外的当地商店约5次。 我租了一辆车16天,150。 (一个雷诺克里奥),发现这真的是成本情感购物和旅游都是你自己可行的。 我过夜与狮子一起散步,骑马在非洲马背上吃4道菜,2顿午餐,早餐也是约2600兰特(165)。 大象和猴子庇护所花费了65美元以及自驾游。 我在汽油上花了大约100美元,但在我休假的时候开了很多车。我自己驾驶Dinokeng,每天进入150兰特(10),当天有2辆车。 互联网很差,但如果你开车离开现场它会改善。 提示下载了很多晚上的系列和电影。您还需要一张SIM卡,每周数据容量约为1 GB。我有一个2 GB和一些文本,并打电话约25。在比勒陀利亚的CellC商店。我知道你累了,但如果你可以做这个街道Joburg机场我会。特别是如果你没有车,否则会花费出租车费用。 你需要自己做饭,冰箱和冰箱的一部分分配给你。可悲的是,我有胃病和胸部感染所以我大部分时间都不在我的食物里。 不要指望与猴子在笼子里,因为你只能与一些mar猴和t猴和松鼠猴进入,因为其余的可能是不可预测的。您每周只进行一次,持续1小时。你在罗塔,但可以请求你的假期。你一般做4。每周一次上午30点,下午7点检查一样。否则,它是每天上午9点至下午12点,然后是下午2点至5点。别忘了头灯。 我喜欢在这里度过的时光,如果我在该地区打个招呼,我会很喜欢。每周花费175元给志愿者,包括你的房间。最短为2周。如果你计划自愿生活一年,那就是免费生活,你每周可以得到10大笔零钱。

I stayed at IPR for 6 weeks and had an absolutely amazing time. It is work - not a holiday, but if you are passionate about helping care for vulnerable primates, then it is a fabulous place to be. The monkeys are happy and well cared for and are always the main priority. In my experience, all the volunteers are happy to pitch in and help with whatever needs doing (although I guess it's always going to be luck of the draw who the other volunteers are when you're there). I would urge anyone who has an interest in monkeys to come here. As they can't be released back into the wild, contact with the monkeys is allowed, and this made the experience even more special. Sue is running a really wonderful place here and, because of her, these monkeys, many with traumatic backgrounds, are all living their best lives!

I cannot even begin to express my love for the primates at International Primate Rescue! Thanks to Sue Mousley, they live happy and fulfilling lives. I know that under her care, no matter what the world throws at the sanctuary, the primates will be fed and loved on. My experience there will never be topped! Not only was it a place where I could live out the dream of caring for primates, but it was so peaceful and structured that I was able to work on myself! I cooked every day, I read, I worked on personal projects and I strived to better myself as a human in general! What was great is that Sue and the other volunteers had open and honest conversations with me about ways in which to help me do it, too. They are genuinely some of the best people I have ever met. Living with strangers isn’t easy and relationships aren’t perfect, but everyone was willing to talk about their problems and concerns and work together. Keep in mind that this isn't totally a vacation! Be ready to work hard! There are so many animals who need you to clean up their poop and feed them all throughout the day! I promise it is worth it, though. I am telling you, if you have the chance to volunteer at IPR, DO IT!!! I cannot wait for the day I get to go back; I know, without a doubt, it will be soon! If for some reason you cannot make the trip, I urge you to consider donating something. A little goes a long way and with Sue in charge I can guarantee the money goes towards nothing but the livelihood of the animals there. This sanctuary is ethical, wonderful and impressive! I am so grateful for the opportunity to work there for 6 months and I would have stayed longer if I could at the time! IPR will always be considered another home to me and so many others who pass through.

p.s. I cannot believe there are negative reviews of this place. It makes absolutely no sense to me. Sue is the kindest, most selfless woman on the planet and you get to work with primates! People that cannot appreciate an experience like this must have unreasonable expectations or a poor work ethic.

I volunteered here almost eight years ago and can honestly say that my experience was not reflected in ANY of the positive reviews read here.

I personally did not mind working with monkeys, however the accomodation was awful with only ONE TOILET to be shared between about 20-30 volunteers. The only meal of the day which I enjoyed was dinner.

I personally would not reccomend IPR to anyone. I have subsequently volunteered at the Ukutula Lion Centre in the Brits and can honestly say it is miles better so I would highly reccomend this place over IPR anyday - for more information see my review written for this place!

I was meant to stay at IPR for one year working in the food prep role but unfortunately after a few weeks there, management decided my work had suddenly got bad and abruptly gave me 24 hours to pack up my stuff and leave. This was coincidentally a few days before my probation was up so they would have had to start paying me a food allowance if I had passed and my work was satisfactory.

There is a divide between the short term volunteers and the long termers or as management called it 'the paid customers and the staff'. This includes us being discouraged from helping eachother with our individual tasks and allowing the short termers to skip work and relax whenever they want. Since I left a month ago, 4 other volunteers have terminated their stay early.

The website is seriously outdated - there's no pool or bar next door and there's only 2 toilets and 1 shower for everyone to use including the permanent residents.

I spent 4 weeks at the sanctuary and had the most incredible time with the monkeys and loved getting to know all their unique personalities. I have nothing but praise for Sue, Paula and Craig, who run the sanctuary, whether it be how welcoming they are to all volunteers to make them feel at home or their relentless tenacity in ensuring the physical and mental health of every single animal under their care. As a short term volunteer you are paired with a long term volunteer for tasks like topping up food, weekly early feeds, cleaning enclosures regularly and general maintanence around the sanctuary. While the work can be hard the satisfaction and intrisic reward it brings is very gratifying. The passion of those who run and volunteer at the sanctuary is apparent as they wake up at the crack of dawn to give medicine and supplements to the primates who require them and regularly check up on their progress to make sure all the primates are happy and healthy. The primates' welfare is at the forefront of everything at the sanctuary whether it's expanding enclosures, introducing monkeys together or ensuring each primate is on a sustainable diet to keep them in good health. Even in my relatively short stay I witnessed Stanford, a Rhesus Macaque, be introduced into a much larger enclosure which changed his whole demeanour and quality of life. Many of the ex pet primates enjoy human interaction and I was shown how to do so in a safe and deferential way.

On a side note, the one negative review was suggestive the primates are on poor diets and in unsanitary enclosures. This couldn't be further from the truth; the porridge is filled with numerous supplements tailored to the different primates and theyre given a variety of fruits and vegetables each day. I was quite taken aback at how regimented and precise the food preperation was. The primates are given appropiate treats once a day as a way of maintaining weight. Every enclosure is cleaned regularly and thoroloughly in additon if they become more dirty than usual they are cleaned ahead of schedule. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience (apart from how cold it is in winter South African evenings) and the high level of care is reflected by many of the primates significantly outliving their expected life span. I cannot recommend going enough!

I came to volunteer for just over 2 weeks. As far as the approx 100 monkeys and all the animals they care for ( rescue cats, dogs, parrot , dove, foxes, nocturnal animals etc) they are king. With a first feed at daybreak 04.30 and last check they are in bed at 7pm with multiple checks during the day these monkeys are pampered. With food cut to minute size for the bush babies then a little bigger for the marmosets and more chunky still for the capuchins all food is prepared daily and kept in fridge ready to distribute along with top ups during the day. All bowls bleached and washed and cages cleaned with new fresh blankets on a 1-2 weekly basis. The owners are passionate about animals and primates and so are the long term volunteers.
As previously stated it is very basic living for volunteers so please be prepared for possible multiple bedrooms sharing in peak periods ,multiple Mossi bites ( bring citronella, bite cream etc) no going out at night as dangerous and isolated location. So you do relax as you go to bed early.... ie 8-9pm but you adjust and find yourself mooching about at 7 am which I wouldn’t at home.
Neighbour runs tours but unless you can go with others ie a minimum of 3 it can be expensive see pictures for prices. He also runs a adhoc taxi service which includes pickup and drop off to airport for £60 each way and about £5 to the local shop a mile away.
I rented a car for 16 days for £150. ( a Renault Clio) and found this really cost affective as shopping and the tours are all doable on your own.
I went overnight to walk with lions and ride at Horseback Africa and this with 4 course meal, 2 lunches, breakfast as well was approx 2600 rand (£165).
It cost me £65 for elephant and monkey sanctuary as well as a self drive safari.
I spent approx £100 on petrol but drove a lot in my days off. I self drove Dinokeng and entry was 150 rand each (£10) for 2 with Car for the day.
Internet is poor but if you drive off site it improves.
Tips download lots of series and movies for evenings.you also really need a SIM card with data allowance of approx 1 GB per week. I got one with 2 GB and some texts and calls for approx £25. At a CellC store in Pretoria. I know your tired but if you can do this st Joburg airport I would. Especially if you don’t have a car as it’ll cost a taxi trip otherwise.
You need to cook for yourself and part of a freezer and fridge are allocated to you. Sadly I had stomach bug and a chest infection so was off my food most of time I was there.
Don’t expect to be in cages with the monkeys as you can only go in with a few of the marmosets and tamarins and squirrel monkeys due to the fact the rest can be unpredictable. You do this once a week for 1 hour only. You are in a rota but can request your days off. You generally do a 4.30am once a week and same for a 7pm check. Otherwise it’s 9am-12 and then 2-5pm each day. Don’t forget a head light.
I enjoyed my time here and will pop in if I am in the area to say hi. It costs £175 per week to volunteer which is including your room. Minimum is 2 weeks. If you plan to volunteer for a year it’s free living and you get £10 approx pocket money per week.

Working with animals has always been a dream of mine. I booked a visit to IPR on impulse, having no idea what to expect.
When arriving, I was shown around the 'human' living area. It's very very basic, but it said to me that this was a real charity, with the emphasis being on the animals. I was then shown around the sanctuary and they have a huge range of different primates, from marmosets, capuchins, tamarins, mona monkeys, squirrel monkeys and more. The pet trade in these wild animals in SA is big, needless to say the majority of these animals are ex pets, however there are also rescues from labs, zoos and other such places.
The work is so rewarding, knowing you are making a difference to the life of an animal, that unfortunately cannot be returned to the wild (none of them are indegionous to SA) you build, you clean, you feed and make enrichment. You have other jobs around the sanctuary too.
On down time, you can go on trips organised by their lovely next door neighbours. Be sure not to go to SA and miss a trip to Kruger, it is amazing.
All in all, one of the best things I have ever done. Volunteering is a must for anyone seeking a new and rewarding experience.

My three weeks at IPR were priceless I am so thankful for the experience that everyone at IPR gave me , they allowed me to get involved and taught me a lot about looking after animals, their care is dedicated to the monkeys at the sanctuary and other animals with the food they prepare and facilities provided for the monkeys and the enclosures. I could see that everything that goes into this charity is used for the monkeys and it's amazing to see how well they are for their animals with little funding! I really recommend volunteering here as everyone is so welcoming and kind you will guaranteed to feel at home within your first day!! Overall I couldn't fault my stay here because it provided me with a fantastic life experience amongst a bunch of lovely people who cared so much for the volunteers as well as the monkeys. But I can't praise enough how dedicated these people are to providing better lives for the monkeys and other animals ! Thank you so much for making my 3 weeks the best !! Georgina ⭐️

Volunteering is such an amazing experience. The people that give up their lives to care for these animals need a medal.
IPR is a charity that is a little under the radar. They survive solely on the volunteer contribution, so if you want to make a rescued monkeys life better, get volunteering 😀 I have been there 10 times, but I have also volunteered in other places. These guys rescued some monkeys last year that were starving to death, within six months in their care the turn around was amazing (check out my pics of the before and after)
Your duties include- cleaning, making enrichment, collecting food bowels, monitoring, building works, supplements and much more. No one day is the same. It is hard work though so don''t think it's all about cuddling monkeys!
On your days off, you can go on trips, that their neighbours run. Kruger is a must, but there are other smaller and nearer game reserves if money is tight, or head to Joburg and check out the apartaid museum.
Don't expect 5 star luxuary, this is a real charity, which means money is tight and human comfort is not a priority. The owner has around 30 years experience of working with primates and is extremely knowledgable in their care. I would defiantly recommend this place, especially if you are studying and want some real experience.

I have been coming back and forth to International Primate Rescue to volunteer for quite some time. The primates completely stole my heart from my very first visit, and I have found them to be a absolute joy to care for ever since.

IPR is a great place to meet like minded people that are friendly and welcoming. it's a place where you can also make new friends along the way, and even bond and make a friend or two with the primates here which is a definite plus .

The Primates get the upmost care and attention in all aspects. I can say they eat better than I do, in the sense that they get a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, monkey nut's, sunflower seeds and get a bowl of porridge included.

It's good physical work, with cleaning of enclosures, chopping hay and using of wheelbarrows. Some days a good amount walking around the sanctuary doing numerous jobs will be involved too.

I would very much recommend anyone to come IPR and volunteer to see for yourself what primate caring is all about, and also learn a thing or two. It's a amazing experience which i've enjoyed every moment.
