Our Work – Education

Underpinning all of Wild Futures’ work in conservation, campaigning and rehabilitation is our education work. We believe that the only way to achieve conservation goals is by ensuring open communication channels are maintained with all of our audiences and by educating people on the issues surrounding our work.

Our audiences:

  • Central and local government.
  • Other conservation organizations and forums.
  • Over 30,000 visitors to our sanctuary each year.
  • School, youth and adult education establishments.
  • The general public.

  • Rainforest conservation, with particular focus on primate habitats.
  • Sustainability and ethical consumerism.
  • The primate pet trade and its impact on wild populations.

Our methods:

  • Formal and informal presentations, discussion groups, talks and workshops at our sanctuary site and in educational establishments.
  • Participation in local, national and international conservation forums and conferences.
  • Advising at local and central government level on primate welfare issues.

Friends of mine introduced me to the work of Wild Futures some time ago, and I am proud to be able to support their work through the ‘adopt a monkey’ scheme. The welfare and conservation work that Wild Futures’ undertake is both valuable and inspiring
