Hi everyone, this message is from Akumal Monkey Sanctuary & Rescued Animals team.  We are a group of people who work hard to preserve the wildlife in the Quintana Roo area of Mexico.  Our sanctuary has more than 250 rescued animals, 50 different species, that are now threatened once again due to the  COVID-19 pandemic.

For the last 3 years, we have worked hard to give rescued animals a second chance, and above all, a home.  We are dedicated to rescuing different vulnerable species of wildlife, authorized by the Government of Mexico, as well as collaborating with various public and private institutions to provide care and rehabilitation.  We are a private institution, fully funded and supported by our efforts and contributions of more than 40,000 visitors.  We do not receive any external support from the government or any other private agency.

Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, visitors to the Riviera Maya area in Quintana Roo, Mexico, have been greatly reduced thereby severely reducing our necessary funds to meet our daily commitment of feeding and medical care to our animals.  PLEASE, today we ask for your help, to keep our sanctuary functioning and our important work of rescue and rehabilitation alive!

In advance, the staff of Akumal Monkey Sanctuary & Rescued Animals thank you for your support from the bottom of our hearts.  We appreciate your generosity and interest in the wildlife of Quintana Roo, on the Yucatan Peninsula.  We wish you good health as you navigate through this crisis, and I look forward to meeting you one day if allowed to visit our beautiful sanctuary in Akumal, Mexico.

For transparency,  Larry and Lisa Anderson have set up this go fund me on behalf of the Akumal Monkey Sanctuary. All donations are documented and records can be shared upon request of a donor to ensure every penny is used properly.  The Anderson's can be reached at [email redacted].

On behalf of all the animals at the sanctuary, thank you for your donations!
