Parcels for Primates; Monkey Wish List Appeal!

Keepers at Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary are appealing for supporters to send in essential wish list items for the resident monkeys!

a delicious donation from one of our lovely supporter

We celebrated the 50th anniversary of Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary in 2014 – help us to continue celebrating by sending a gift that the monkeys will love.

With more monkeys to care for than ever before, we have more mouths to feed and higher bills to pay. Rocketing prices of their favourite treats means that we need your help!

If you are visiting the Sanctuary, you could bring along a treat-filled shoebox or just send one or two items via post- anything would be a great help and much appreciated by the monkeys!

Most of the items on our wish list are readily available in supermarkets, pet stores or health food shops, so you could just add a little something to your weekly shop or order online and have it delivered straight to the monkeys – Waitrose, Sainsburys, Asda and Ocado all deliver to The Monkey Sanctuary!

If you’re an adopter, please tell us who you would like your care package to be for, so that one of their keepers can let you know their favourite snacks and treats.

Only with your support and generosity are we able to continue to give our rescued monkeys the best life possible. By helping our charity, your generous donation will contribute towards the costs of caring for the rescued monkeys at the Sanctuary and protecting the habitats of their fellow primates worldwide.

On behalf of the monkeys, thank-you!
