Monkey Jungle, Miami Reviews

  • This place is HORRIBLE! This is not a “wildlife park”, it is little more than a roadside zoo. The animals are kept in below-standard environments, forced to live in deplorable conditions. I saw animals living in their own excrement with filth and debris, and no enrichment. They were so bored in fact, that some of animals picked on the scabs of their wounds for entertainment. When I went back and asked why some of the animals I had seen before were missing, employees told me they had been transferred elsewhere, but a few other employees stated that in fact, the animals hadn’t been transferred - they had been given too much medication and overdosed, then simply discarded off and taken out of sight. Those employees told me that things are so bad in fact, that they can no longer work there. This place does not deserve to have the words “wildlife”, “park”, “sanctuary” or anything of such a nature in their title. I know most people who visit don’t see the misery that I have seen, but then again most people haven’t worked with wildlife before, and don’t know perhaps what the standards are or should be. This place might be fun to look at for people who don’t know better, but for the workers who work there and animals that are forced to live there, it is a nightmare. This absolutely does not compare to the standard of other wildlife parks and sanctuaries that I have visited as a patron (or worked at as an employee). This place needs to be fined and shut down!

  • Beautiful place. I encourage you to go there. A place that must be visited

  • The treatment of these animals is horrendous! Monkeys and apes both are very social animals and should be together with room to climb and play. Many were in small metal floored cages with no earth below their feet. These animals are naturally shy and should be allowed cover, not stuck in small cages and forced to be poked and gawked at all day with no place to hide. VETY stressful place for these sentient beings!! It should be SHUT DOWN!

  • They really need to tell people that they are closed because of the hurricane. it was very disappointing after taking a long drive just to find out that they are closed!!! Please do better !!!

  • Just a Prison for intelligent; sentient beings. Don't spend your money to finance another being's suffering
