Kirsty arrived at our Sanctuary in April 2011 from a small private sanctuary that was closing down and she was originally rescued from an isolated life in the pet trade. She had lived with another capuchin monkey at the sanctuary for many years, but of a different species to her. On seeing monkeys of her own kind on arrival, Kirsty was immediately eager to meet them and excited to talk to them in her own language. She was soon integrated into a black-capped capuchin group and fell in love with Kodak, the big male in the group. She now spends her days socialising with her group and loves to forage for bugs and grubs amongst the lush vegetation in her network of enclosures.
Adopting Kirsty means that you are helping to provide the resources needed to give Kirsty 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.
