Please note that if you are arranging an adoption pack as a Christmas present please ensure the start date is 25/12/15. If you put an earlier date the recipient may receive the winter chronicle before they receive the gift.


Christmas adoptions will be sent out during the 2nd week of December latest unless the adoption is being sent direct to the adoptive parent when they will be sent out a little later to arrive in time for Christmas. 

Adoption packs include:

  • FREE admission to the park for one year with your adoption members entry pass.
  • A photograph of your chosen primate.
  • An adoption certificate.
  • The 'Ape Rescue Chronicle', our newsletter magazine, which is published 3 times a year.
  • The opportunity to take part in exclusive 'Adoptive Parent Only Events', such as 'The Great Big Sleepover'!

The primate adoption scheme enables us to create additional reserves and a safe haven for the many primates whose lives are still in danger around the world.  Monkey World is a 65 acre sanctuary with over 250 primates. We are a philanthropic organisation who, with the support of the public, can rescue and rehabilitate primates from all over the world.  Your adoption/donation money goes into a 100% fund, which is used solely for the rescue and rehabilitation of primates.  We are not a registered charity.


We wanted to inform you that as from June 1st, 2015 we have changed our adoption prices. As always we try to keep our costs to supporters as low as possible, however, the cost of our primate care has increased over the past 8/9 years since we last adjusted the adoption prices.

We have also re-structured adoption categories to bring in different “groups” which will hopefully benefit you, our supporters. For example Single Parent Families and Youth Groups can now benefit from their own unique category.

We wish to thank you very much for your valued support over the years and know that you will understand the necessity for this price increase. Without your continued support we would not be able to rescue as many monkeys and apes as we do.
