We are re-opening to the public on May 22nd 2021!
Nestled into the side of the south Cornish coast between Looe and Seaton, Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary has been offering a safe haven for monkeys since 1964. The Sanctuary cares for a range of different species of rescued monkeys, giving visitors an intimate insight to a working sanctuary and a chance to meet some of its amazing monkey residents and wildlife inhabitants.
After 15 long months we are opening our doors again!
Due to Covid-19 and the vulnerability of the monkeys, we are having to open in a slightly different way. Because of the layout and location of our site, and to ensure the best possible safety and protection from Covid-19 for the monkeys, visitors, and our team, we will be offering pre-booked guided tours for groups of 12 people. The tour will take approximately 1 hour walking around the monkey enclosures, talking about the history of the Sanctuary, the species of monkeys that we care for, the UK primate pet trade, and the general running of the Sanctuary. Once the tour has finished, you can wander in our Wildlife Gardens and enjoy the sea views with light refreshments available for purchase from our small gift shop. Due to our restrictions in place, and trying to keep the number of people in any one place down, you will not have access back up to the monkeys once the tour is over.
Please note: The wearing of face masks is mandatory for the tour around the monkeys and in indoor spaces. (Medical and children under the age of 11 exemptions apply).
Thank you for visiting the Sanctuary – your support is particularly important after 15 months of closed doors and no visitor income. Your visit will be vital to us being able to continue rescuing and caring for monkeys in need.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Please note – The Monkey Sanctuary is an outdoor venue
