Monkey World

Ape Rescue Centre

Monkey World is a 65 acre park in the heart of the Dorset countryside.

It's home to over 250 rescued monkeys and apes of 20 different species. Monkey World assists governments around the world to stop the smuggling of primates from the wild. At the Centre refugees of this illegal trade as well as those that have suffered abuse or neglect are rehabilitated into natural living groups.
