OPR Coastal Primate Sanctuary - Longview, WA

OPR Coastal Primate Sanctuary, located on a secluded 28 acre sanctuary in beautiful Longview, Washington. Safely nestled among the fir trees and surrounded by nature, this truly is a place where the monkeys feel at home! OPR is a USDA licensed sanctuary. We are an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was first established on small acreage in Dallas Oregon in 1998.

Oregon Primate Rescue has adopted the name "OPR Coastal Primate Sanctuary" due to our new location and not wanting to appear geographically specific.

An unbelievably breath taking 28 acres surrounded by evergreens, filled with the sound of birds twilling in the distance, deer passing through the meadows each day, and the sound of trickling water steering its way through the frog filled ponds. This truly is heaven on earth for the monkeys! A secluded safe haven where they truly do feel at home!

Because OPR is a sanctuary, we are not open to the general public. We do offer private educational tours by appointment from April 1st through September 30th if weather permits. We are closed in the winter because monkeys do not like to go outdoors when it's cold & visitors would not be able to see them from the tour areas.

Our tour guides will escort you through the sanctuary grounds and introduce you to each one of our resident monkeys. You will hear the stories of how each monkey came to OPR, and learn about each individual’s unique personality. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about monkeys in general. And you will be amazed at the intelligence & social behavior of these very special creatures.

Tour groups are offered for a minimum of 4 individuals and a maximum of 20, and typically take 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
