Primate Centre Wins Prime Award

Wareham & Purbeck Guardian


Pioneering campaigner Dr Jane Goodall was at Monkey World on Monday to present a top animal welfare award to the Wareham Ape Rescue Centre. Dr Goodall has been honoured by the world's presidents and prime ministers for her work in bringing to light the emotional and physical needs of endangered primates. And the 1998 Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) Zoo Animal Welfare Award has been presented to Monkey World for its woolly monkey habitat - a new enclosure which is uniquely tailored to the animals' emotional and physical needs, and developed after rescuing animals which had been smuggled from the wild for the illegal pet trade. Consisting of a house with a sunroof, separate bedrooms, an indoor play area, and deep littered with forest bark, the enclosure has an outdoor habitat with a large stand of trees with connecting ropes and aerial feeding trays.
