Volunteer Spotlight: Hanah Gilmore

I am a senior Zoology and Conservation Biology undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison interested in wildlife biology and species conservation. I have two cats, Basil and Barley, and grew up with horses, which inspired my passion for animal care and welfare.

I was inspired to volunteer at Primates Incorporated because I think, as our closest biological relatives, primates are a deeply fascinating and valuable species that deserve our attention and respect. I think Primates Incorporated’s mission to give monkeys an enriching retirement is incredibly important, and I am thankful to be a part of it.

I have been volunteering at Primates Inc. for a just over a year, and have really enjoyed getting to work with all the staff and monkeys. I have especially loved getting to experience the introduction of Jojo to the sanctuary. He has grown so much already and it has been an incredible experience watching his journey.




Thank you so much for all of your help, Hanah! The monkeys and humans greatly appreciate it!
