Meet the Woolly Monkey
Ivor is a adult male woolly monkey. He was born at the Monkey Sanctuary and lives as part of an established social group. Ivor is often easy to see as he likes to demonstrate his strength by shaking the enclosure wire at visitors. He is friendly and polite once he is used to an individual human, but will still not allow humans to think they are in charge! He has many ways to make sure of this, as our primate welfare team are well aware!
Lily was born on 18th October 2014, to woolly monkey Maya; but her birth wasn’t exactly planned! Sadly, Maya passed away due to old age related health-problems, but happily all of the males want to care for and protect her now. Ivor in particular adores her and they are very close. Lily is still learning everything she needs to know about being a woolly monkey and it is great to see her benefiting from a social group.
Oliver is a popular member of the woolly colony. He is an adventurous character who is always foraging and exploring. He loves to play, swing, jump and see how much he can get away with around the other monkeys. Ollie could well live in his twenties; adopting Ollie means that you are offering staff at the Monkey Sanctuary the resources they need to offer him the best quality of life possible, for the rest of his life.
Pablo is a handsome and healthy male woolly monkey. Pablo is part of a powerful family group and has two young nephews called Ollie and Caju. He is often found in the highest tree-tops of the ‘Trees’ enclosure where he enjoys climbing and leaping. Pablo is very strong and confident but is also a good friend to other monkeys such as his young nephews, and his friend Ivor.
