Mission: IPR is a primate sanctuary located in rural Pretoria, South Africa. We take in primates in need from all over the world and provide them with permanent sanctuary care. Some of these primates have been used for clinical trials or rescued from the exotic pet trade. We currently house over 125 monkeys including Marmosets, Tamarins, Squirrel Monkeys, Macaques and Mona Monkey, along with Grey Mouse Lemurs and a Fennec Fox.

Our aim is to expand the sanctuary and take in more primates, including apes, that need our help. With your support we can improve the facilities for our existing primates and expand to rescue primates throughout the world facing uncertain futures and appalling living conditions.

Principal Research Programs: We take in short and long-term volunteers from all over the world. No qualifications are necessary, our volunteer placements are ideally suited to students looking for work experience with primates or an interest in their behaviour or to those looking for a career break.

Volunteer fees are 175 GBP per week, based on self-catering, dorm style accommodation.

See or email Sue at for more information.

Training Opportunities: Volunteer workers are welcome to spend some time at the sanctuary, helping to care for the monkeys, while studying their behaviour. Please contact Sue Mousley for more information. The email address is
