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
Kiwi arrived at our Sanctuary in 2010 after being kept
as a pet in a breeze block outbuilding for many years with her mother, Gizzie
and half-brother, Grips. The cold, damp conditions had left her with painful
arthritis and she was underweight due to a lack of exercise and poor diet.
After just a few weeks of specialist care, her health improved dramatically and
she is now thriving. Her natural surroundings have allowed her natural
behaviours to blossom; she loves involving herself in the monkey politics of
neighbouring monkey groups and can often be found shouting support (or abuse!)
across the enclosures! She has a strong bond with Grips and she doesn't really
care for humans, unless there is a chance of a grape reward!
