The host organization is the only UK charity with a holistic approach combining an educational and environmental remit
dedicated to promoting the welfare, conservation and survival of our closest living relatives, the non-human
primates. We are working to end the primate trade and abuse of primates in captivity, promoting the rehabilitation
of captive primates and the preservation of those in the wild, whilst operating a sanctuary for primates in need of a
home for life.
Our safe haven for monkeys saved from mistreatment is The Monkey Sanctuary. We recently celebrated our 50th Anniversary and have provided a home for life and specialist care for more than 160 monkeys over the years. We are proud to be the first and only facility in the whole of Europe to be accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS), demonstrating that we provide humane and responsible care for our animals. Because most of the monkeys come into us extremely traumatized and damaged, we recognize the importance of ensuring long-term, consistent care from people they know and trust. We also rely heavily on volunteers to help us to run our sanctuary day-to-day.
As well as providing a home for life to monkeys in need, we work closely with other charitable organizations to
lobby local and central government to try and bring about positive change for primates. Our campaigns work has led
to much advancement, including political recognition of the trade in primates as pets, the publication of a primate
code of practice as part of the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and strong public support demonstrated by 45,000 petition
signatures. We believe that education is vital for change and act in an advisory capacity in diverse forums, as well as educating visitors to our sanctuary and more than 3,000 school, college and university students on our work each
year. We are committed to providing advice, practical support and funding to overseas projects linked with primate
welfare and conservation.
We have supported primate projects throughout South and Central America and Africa, many of which involve conservation initiatives with local communities and government.
When it comes to conservation though, we believe it’s just as important to conserve plant and animal species closer
to home as those on distant shores, so we also work to conserve UK species in danger from habitat loss, including
the lesser horseshoe bat and the pearl-bordered fritillary butterfly.
