Monkey Wish List

If you would like to send the monkeys a gift, please read the wish list below for ideas on what they need and like!

As a charity, we rely on the generous donations of our wonderful supporters to help us continue our vital work. This includes food, enrichment and practical everyday items that help us to provide the best life possible for the rescued monkeys at The Monkey Sanctuary.

If you are visiting the Sanctuary, you could bring along a treat-filled box or just send some items via post– anything would be a great help and much appreciated by the monkeys!

Most of the items on our wish list are readily available online, in supermarkets or in health food shops, so you can just add a little something to your weekly shop or order online and have it delivered straight to the monkeys!

If you’re an adopter, please tell us who you would like your care package to be for, so that one of their carers can let you know their favourite treats!

Only with your support and generosity are we able to continue to give our rescued monkeys the best life possible. By helping our charity, your generous donation will contribute towards the costs of caring for the rescued monkeys at the Sanctuary and protecting the habitats of their fellow primates worldwide.

On behalf of the monkeys, thank you!
