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.
