About Coco and Kiki
Coco and Kiki were rescued together having been kept as pets for a number of years. They arrived at the Monkey Sanctuary in March 2017; the first marmosets to be given a forever home by Wild Futures! Coco was born in 2015, born specifically to be sold into the primate pet trade. He was kept alone for the first year of his life before his owners bought Kiki to keep him company. Because of this time spent alone, Coco is not as confident as Kiki and doesn’t always handle social situations correctly, but Kiki is there to give him a firm telling off if he steps out of line!
Coco is the quieter one of the pair, often watching Kiki take the first steps in trying something new. He has a sweet nature, but will protect his friend Kiki whenever he feels threatened. She is the leader of the pair, and in her opinion, the leader of all the monkeys at the sanctuary! Her confidence grows by the day as she is always eager to explore new things. Coco and Kiki love spending time together playing and wrestling, as well as sleeping curled up together in the sunshine!
Adopting Coco and Kiki means that you are helping to provide the resources needed to give Coco and Kiki 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.
