My Story

Avaya the African Green Monkey


When you answer the phone here at Popcorn Park you never know what to expect. This time it was a call from NJ Fish and Wildlife. They had a small monkey that they had confiscated during  police activity at a private residence. Avaya, a young African Green monkey, was being kept illegally so Fish & Wildlife needed somewhere for her to go. Once we saw the little girl we gladly said Yes! She’s a real sweetheart. We picked her up at a vet’s office where she was being held and brought her back to her new home. 

She’s doing really well, loves engaging with staff and dinner time seems to be her favorite meal. She looks carefully at her dinner dish and moves her food around to find what she wants first, usually the cooked sweet potatoes, grapes and pasta are next and so on down the line. You can sponsor her through our Wildlife Club Program. You will receive updates, letters from her and pictures plus a membership card which provides free entry to the park so you can visit her. Please consider sponsoring Avaya today!
