Monkey World assists governments around the world to stop the smuggling of primates from the wild.
At the Centre refugees of this illegal trade as well as those that have suffered abuse or neglect are rehabilitated into natural living groups.Rescue & Rehabilitation
For those of you who would like to donate goods to the park, please find detailed below, a list of items that we need and use regularly here at the park. Please also see Shoe Box Appeal!
Donations of fruit and vegetables enable us to reduce costs on our weekly shopping bill, enabling us to rescue and rehabilitate more primates, however this list is not exclusive and we try to give the primates here at the park as much variety as possible.
|turnip||variety of berries|
|variety of lettuce||tomato|
We also get through an incredible amount of blankets, sheets, towels, duvet covers & pillowcases. The primates simply love them, they play with them, hide under them and enjoy snuggling up in them at bedtime.
Please Note: we are unable to take crochet blankets, the primates are very inquisitive and may get fingers or other body parts stuck in the holes.
Our smaller monkeys enjoy nesting inside baskets, small to medium size suits them best however they do need to be quite robust.
Heavy Duty dog toys are a real favourite amongst the primates, Kong toys or feeding balls filled with hidden treats and vegetables provide the apes and monkeys with a good source of enrichment.
Evening primrose oil and milk thistle capsules. Vitamin C tablets (LOW DOSE 60mg). Glucosamine & Chondroitin combination capsules.
