We are home to 40 monkeys that have been rescued from situations of abuse and neglect from the UK primate pet trade. Covid-19 has caused devastation across the world and like many others we are struggling as a result of this pandemic and are facing one of our toughest years to date. Our main priority is to make sure that they have food, the medicines they need along with continued care.
As lockdown is easing, and people are navigating back to ‘normal’ life, unfortunately, for us things remain very much as they were at the start of lockdown. Due to our size and location, we cannot implement safety measures for Covid-19 effectively enough to guarantee the safety of the public and monkeys if we were to open our doors.
Therefore we have made the very difficult, but essential decision to remain closed.
During the summer months, we normally open our doors to visitors to generate crucial income that helps see us through the winter when funds are low. We are currently facing the prospect of at least a year without our usual income sources, and therefore we are in serious threat of not having enough money to see us safely through to next year.
We know how difficult this situation is for everybody but we are appealing for emergency help to get us through this uncertain time.
If you can, please make a donation to our emergency appeal today. Even a regular commitment of £10 per month would help enormously! Share this appeal with your friends and family. Every action, every penny counts.
Despite the challenges, we will continue caring for the rescued monkeys in our care and continue with our charity work to the best of our ability. The kindness that people are showing in this world wide crisis is overwhelming and together we are stronger and we know that with support we will come through this.
No matter how small, your contribution will help us to continue caring for the rescued monkeys here. Please donate today www.wildfutures.org/donate and follow us on Facebook for updates.
