Adopting

Adopting a monkey with Wild Futures really is a gift with a difference. Whether it’s a gift for yourself or another, you will be supporting the work of our charity and enabling us to protect primates and their habitats worldwide. The monkeys featured in the adoption scheme reside at projects run by Wild Futures. Each monkey is unique with their own characters and personalities so please do check out their monkey pictures and profiles. As a Monkey adopter you will receive:

  • A cuddly monkey toy (optional)
  • Personalised certificate of your adoption
  • Photo of your adopted monkey
  • Your monkey’s story
  • Species factsheet
  • Wild Futures newsletters throughout the year
  • Discounted entry fee to our Monkey Sanctuary

About Elvis

Elvis is a big alpha male in the Sanctuary’s first and only natural family group of capuchins. He and his family arrived at our Sanctuary in 2012 from an animal care college when it became apparent that they were not suitable animals on which to practice ‘hands on’ animal care! We knew we could offer them a safe home for life so agreed to take them on. Despite his size, Elvis is a gentle giant in many ways and often lets his alpha female, Sue take control of disciplining the group. Although he lives in his own social group, he also loves to chat to his monkey neighbours. Elvis and Frosty can often be found sitting opposite each other in their separate enclosures surrounded by their ladies engaging in ear-piercing greetings!
