Angela Grimes is the Chief Executive Officer of Born Free USA. In 2002, Born Free USA was launched in the United States to bring Born Free’s vision to the American public. The vision is for a co-existent future where humans no longer exploit wild animals. Born Free also operates the largest Primate Sanctuary in the United States. The 175-acre sanctuary, located in south Texas, provides a safe, permanent home to approximately 475 monkeys, many rescued from abuse in roadside zoos or as “pets” in private homes or retired from research. Today we talk about a recent rescue of five monkeys from a roadside zoo.
