Gloria and Richard’s wonderful dog Sierra passed away yesterday. Sierra was a Neapolitan Mastiff, a breed that was originally found on family farms in Italy. Sierra arrived at Fauna when she was 2 and lived out the next 7 years protecting the property and chasing the cats. She fought a courageous battle with cancer and will be missed by all of us here at Fauna who loved here dearly.

This is Darla, sitting by her window admiring the tropical gardens. Darla is a very emotional rhesus macaque who shares the indoor-outdoor enclosures of the Fauna monkey-house with her friends, rhesus macaque Newton,  white-faced capuchin Sophie and the magnificent olive baboon, Theo. Darla, like so many other monkeys currently being used inside university and private research facilities, was captured in the wild. She was used in multiple studies before arriving at her home at Fauna. Her story is one of many important histories that are included in the feature-length documentary film, Maximum Tolerated Dose.
