The mission of OPR is to provide lifetime care in a humane and enriching environment to unwanted,
orphaned or crippled monkeys that originate from private owners, from government agencies, and to
those retiring from a life of research.
OPR raises awareness of the complexities involved in keeping primates as pets, and to discuss adult or abhorrent behaviors caused by various aspects of captive life, in hopes of reducing the number of unwanted primates in the private sector. OPR stresses the importance of preserving wildlife habitat, and how human encroachment affects primate species in the wild.
