Art For Monkeys, By Monkeys
Different species of monkey's at the Jungle Friends sanctuary just outside of Northwest Gainesville worked together to make strides towards expanding a facility that cares for abandoned pets and research subjects.
A team of artistic primates completed a series of paintings to be auctioned off and raise money to help jungle friends expand their operation and take in more monkeys.
From September 23rd to 29th the Hippodrome theater in Gainesville will show "Project Nim."
The film chronicles the unsuccessful effort to humanize a chimpanzee and features guest lectures from the man who saved the primate from abuse.
To kick off the film, the Hippodrome and Jungle Friends will host a very important primate fundraiser on Friday September 23rd.
For more information about jungle friends, the born to be wild exhibit and "Project Nim" visit Jungle Friends.
