to provide nonhuman primates a high quality of life with as little human
interference as possible. The 186-acre sanctuary, located near San

were rescued from abusive or exploitative situations.
In Donkey Kong Country 3, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong(R) have been

pals as they explore nine worlds of adventure. Multiple mini-games and
six new levels make this game shine.
