Meet Our Primates

Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre is home to over 250 rescued and endangered primates.

We have 5 different species of gibbon at Monkey World. Monkey World is home to the largest group of chimpanzees outside of Africa, living in 4 different social groups.
There are 3 groups of orang-utans at the park, including 2 different species: Bornean and Sumatran. 
Monkey World is home to Europe's only Orang-utan Creche, and also successfully breeds Bornean orang-utans as part of the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP).
We have 11 species of monkeys and prosimians at the park: capuchin monkeys, common marmosets, Geoffroys marmosets, cotton-top tamarins, patas monkeys, ring-tailed lemurs, white-faced saki monkeys, spider monkeys, squirrel monkeys (pictured), stump-tailed macaques and woolly monkeys.
