Monkey Jungle is a 30-acre (12 ha) wildlife park established in 1933 for the exhibition and study of endangered monkeys in semi-natural habitats. Many projects have been conducted at the park, which is a tourist attraction in the Miami, Florida area. The park is in Redland, Florida at South 216th Street/Hainlin Mill Road near West 147th Avenue.

The park has about 400 primates of 30 different species running loose. Guests walk through a series of tunnel cages. Its tagline is "Where the humans are caged and the monkeys run wild". It includes an Amazonian rainforest.
