Support a charity and visit Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary, offering a safe haven for monkeys since 1964.

Set in beautiful woodland and nestled into the side of the south Cornish coast between Looe and Seaton, Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary cares for a range of different species of rescued monkeys, giving visitors an intimate insight into a working sanctuary and a chance to meet some of its amazing monkey residents.

There’s lots to do for the whole family, who can take a walk around the monkey enclosures and learn about these fascinating animals and the work that goes into caring for them on a daily basis, from our expert team.
The Monkey Sanctuary is home to over 40 individuals; many of them rescued from conditions of abuse and neglect and each one with their distinct characters and personalities. As we are a sanctuary home to rescued monkey that sadly have suffered as a direct result of being kept as a pet, the needs of the monkeys always take priority. Therefore some areas of the sanctuary are not accessible by our visitors so as to give the monkeys the time they need to recover and progress physically, emotionally and socially. The monkeys get fed almost every hour throughout the day, so visitors should be able to watch individuals enjoying a snack or hanging out with their friends!

It’s not just monkeys though! Take a gentle stroll and explore around the beautiful Wildlife Gardens to see what wildlife can be spotted. Once you’ve explored the gardens, kids can let off some steam in the play area.

Our gift shop offers a selection of souvenirs, clothing and toys selected from ethical suppliers, we also offer hot and cold drinks and vegetarian and vegan pasties from the shop, which can be enjoyed on the front lawn, whilst taking in the stunning sea view!

The welfare of the monkeys in our care is paramount and is as always our main priority. Therefore, although Covid-19 restrictions have ended, due to the vulnerability of the monkeys to Covid-19, and to protect our team, we are still opening in a limited way.

All visits to The Monkey Sanctuary must be booked in advance via our website. This way we can manage the number of people around the monkeys to enable us to continue doing our best to keep them, and you, safe. Please don’t try to visit The Monkey Sanctuary without a valid booking confirmation as we won’t be able to let you in.
