Wild Futures

Wild Futures

Wild Futures is a registered charity founded upon five decades of experience as a leader in the field of primate welfare and conservation, environmental education and sustainable practice. We are committed to protecting primates and habitats worldwide, with the protection of non-human primates at the forefront of our work.

Our safe haven for monkeys rescued from situations of abuse and neglect is The Monkey Sanctuary in Cornwall, which has an international reputation for levels of care and innovative management techniques. We work closely with other organisations to lobby local and central government to bring about positive change for primates, and believe that education and sustainable living is vital in changing things for the better.

Our charity receives no government funding, so financial support is vital to allow us to continue our important work.

Wild Futures was the first sanctuary in Europe to have achieved accreditation with the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) in recognition of its high standards and achievements. Wild Futures is a partner and board member of the European Alliance of Rescue centres and Sanctuaries (EARS)

Wild Futures is a UK primate welfare and conservation charity rescuing, campaigning, educating and providing sanctuary to primates in need.

Having witnessed first-hand the rescue and rehabilitation work that the Wild Futures’ dedicated team carries out, I have no hesitation in offering my support to their valuable efforts to protect primates and habitats, and I wish their campaign to end the primate pet trade every success

We are meant to be a nation of animal lovers, so why the trade in a wild, social animal with complex needs is still legal, continues to astound me. Joey’s story is not unique – many of the monkeys rescued by Wild Futures have their own terrible tales. Taking part in this project was important to me and I sincerely hope that many people are moved to support Wild Futures’ work, so that the charity can campaign to put an end to the trade and rescue more monkeys in need
