  • A cuddly monkey toy (optional)

About Billy

Billy arrived as a youngster at Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary in January 2012. Sadly, the details of his past are not fully certain, but we know that he was born in a European zoo from where he was sold into the primate pet trade and smuggled into the UK. When he arrived, Billy was still very young and impressionable and desperately wanted to play with all of his new monkey friends, but his social skills were lacking and he had a lot to learn about capuchin social life!

Luckily, Billy is a very quick learner, and he is also very brave! Not self-pitying, when told off by the other monkeys, he doesn't sulk but patiently waits to be able to play again. Billy has learnt a great deal about being a monkey since his arrival and has grown into a strong, confident leader. 

Adopting Billy means that you are helping to provide the resources needed to give Billy the best life possible. Your adoption also enables Wild Futures to continue its vital work campaigning for an end to the primate pet trade in the UK and abroad.

PLEASE NOTE: Our adoptions are purely symbolic and are a great way to support our sanctuary, where the monkeys shown on our website (who have been rescued from traumatic lives as peoples pets) have a home for life.
