About Monkey Sanctuary

The Monkey Sanctuary Trust is a unique environmental charity dedicated to promoting the welfare, conservation and survival of primates, 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 and operating a sanctuary for the conservation, preservation and welfare of wildlife and the environment. The Monkey Sanctuary Trust is a registered charity in the UK.
The Monkey Sanctuary is situated in beautiful woodlands

The Monkey Sanctuary is situated in beautiful woodlands overlooking Looe Bay in south east Cornwall. For many years the Sanctuary was dedicated to one species, the Amazonian woolly monkey, and was the first place in the world where these monkeys bred successfully outside of their native habitat. The Sanctuary now practices a non-breeding policy implemented by administering a contraceptive pill to the females.

The emphasis for the Sanctuary now is on the continued care and management of the woolly monkey colony and the rescue and rehabilitation of ex-pet capuchin monkeys. The monkeys live in large interconnected enclosures, comprising both indoor and outdoor spaces.
