Curitiba Sanctuary (Paraná)
The installations and structure of this sanctuary are inspired on British park The Monkey World, which turns it to be the more modern one in Brazil. Czech Republic couple Milan and Anita Starostik owned a big industrial corporation in Paraná and had already a private conservation area, due to their interest for animal protection. After they had sold their company, the couple started to dedicate in personal to the great primates and nowadays the sanctuary houses 18 chimpanzees, the majority rescued from Garcia circus. The enclosures have the most modern heating systems and a lot of toys in big areas – the elastic bed is the favorite of the guests.
