About Lodi

Lodi was born in the wild before his mother was likely killed so that he could be smuggled into Europe using falsified importation papers. He was then kept as a pet in Spain, isolated and unable to express his natural behaviours. We were made aware of him needing a home for life, and as we already had a group of weeper capuchins, we agreed to take him on. On arrival at our Sanctuary in June 2011, he was underweight and nervous, but soon made it very obvious that he was desperate to meet the other monkeys! He was keen to meet his new neighbours, but the start of his new life was hindered as his social skills left a lot to be desired! This was due him to having been deprived of monkey companionship since he was an infant. Over the years however, he has learned how to be a monkey once again and now lives with Chanel, Mr Monkey and Gucci. He loves to play with Chanel and spends every night cuddled up with Gucci. A beautiful and happy soul, Lodi makes a perfect alpha male in their group!

Adopting Lodi means that you are helping to provide the resources needed to give Lodi 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.
