Support a local charity and visit Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary, offering a safe haven for monkeys since 1964.
Nestled into the side of the south Cornish coast between Looe and Seaton, Wild Futures' Monkey Sanctuary cares for a range of different species of rescued monkeys, giving visitors an intimate insight to a working sanctuary.
Due to Covid-19 we are having to open in a slightly different way. From the end of May we will be offering pre booked guided tours to visitors. The tour will take around 1 hour walking around the monkey enclosures, talking about the history of the sanctuary, the species of monkeys that we care for, the UK primate pet trade, and the general running of the sanctuary.
Once the tour is finished, you will have an hour of your own time giving you a chance to walk around our gardens, and enjoy the sea views with refreshments available for purchase from our small gift shop.
Please visit our website www.monkey sanctuary.org for more information.
Although restrictions have eased from 12th April 2021, due to other continued restrictions and the layout of our site, and having to focus our limited resources on caring for the monkeys, we sadly cannot welcome people back yet.
We are hoping we will be able to open for some of the 2021 season in a way that complies with Covid-19 safety measure to protect visitors, monkeys, and staff, so please keep checking our website for news on when we can open.
As long as the monkeys are vulnerable to this virus, we must be cautious, but we are hoping to be able to welcome visitors back in some form in late spring, early summer and we can’t wait to see you then.
The welfare of the monkeys in our care is paramount and is as always our main priority, so we thank you for your understanding. We will continue to review this decision and open as soon as it is safe to do so.
This does mean that we continue to lose vital income. We want to take this moment to thank all of you who are reaching out with donations to help us provide the food, medications and care for the rescued monkeys.
We hope that you are all keeping well and safe and we extend our love and thoughts to you all during this unsettling time.
If you want to support the monkeys during this difficult time, please donate today at wildfutures.org/donate
We hope to be able to see you all soon.
