Special skills: Carrying lots of peanuts in his hands, feet and tail!
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
Olly was born into the pet trade in 2014 and came to live at the sanctuary in March 2019. Not a lot of his past is known, like so many of the monkeys we rescue from the pet trade, but we do know that he was seen being taken on the London Underground, an incredibly stressful environment for a monkey, on a lead by a concerned member of the public. Thankfully, they reported what they saw, which lead to Olly being confiscated. He began his new life at Wild Future’s Monkey Sanctuary as a low-ranking individual, but he shows huge potential to mature into a strong adult male who could rise up the ranks in time!
Adopting Olly means that you are helping to provide the resources needed to give Olly 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.
