The Monkey Sanctuary is currently CLOSED

Despite the Government announcing that zoos and safari parks will be allowed to open from Monday 15th June,

it is not possible for The Monkey Sanctuary to open yet.

Unfortunately due to the location and lay out of our sanctuary, we cannot apply social distancing rules to guarantee the safety of the monkeys, staff and visitors.

The welfare of the monkeys in our care is paramount and is as always our main priority, so we thank you for your understanding. We will continue to review this decision and open as soon as it is safe to do so.

This does mean that we continue to lose vital income. We want to take this moment to thank all of you who are reaching out with donations to help us provide the food, medications and care for the rescued monkeys. We hope that you are all keeping well and safe and we extend our love and thoughts to you all during this unsettling time.

We hope to be able to see you all soon.

With love,

The staff and monkeys at Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary

Thank you.


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.

There’s a lot to do for the whole family who can take a tour of the monkey enclosures and learn about these fascinating animals from the team of expert carers. It’s not just monkeys though! Kids will love the wild play area where they can learn about the environment around them and let off some steam in the playground. Take a gentle stroll around the beautiful Wildlife Gardens and check out the sea view, or spend some time perusing the gift shop while enjoying a refreshing beverage.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
