About Monkey Life

After ten years of the series Monkey Business being filmed at the park, Monkey Life was created in 2006. In the last 8 years Monkey Life has produced 7 series totalling 134 half hour episodes; shown on Five and Animal Planet in the UK.
Monkey Life series 8 is in production and we hope to have news soon on which channel will be broadcasting this latest instalment.
Set in Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre in Dorset, UK, Monkey Life follows the nail-biting rescue and rehabilitation stories of some of the most abused and neglected monkeys in the world, and the unwavering hard work of Dr. Alison Cronin, MBE, Jeremy Keeling and their team, in their ongoing mission to stop the illegal smuggling of primates from the wild.  Refugees and chimps that were found abused in laboratories, circus tents or as photographers props are rehabilitated here and given the chance to spend the rest of their days being cared for in a natural environment.
Filmed over the course of a year, this heart-warming series follows the day-to-day dramas and personalities of these, our closest relatives.  From power struggles and dramas, to friendship bonds and new additions to the group, Monkey Life follows some of the most beautiful creatures on the planet, and the team who are devoted to working with them.
