I gave a brief interview (Paul Reynolds, Education Officer) about the birds we have been helping to rescue here at Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary in Looe, Cornwall.
Volunteer at The Monkey Sanctuary, a project of Wild Futures (reg. charity no. 1102532). At The Monkey Sanctuary, we provide a life-long home to a group of woolly monkeys, and a growing number of rescued capuchin monkeys and Barbary macaques. As a volunteer you will help us to clean out monkey enclosures, prepare food and enrichment items for the monkeys, assist in activity and education workshops with young visitors to the Sanctuary, and help in our vegetarian café, as well as other maintenance tasks during the winter months. All the while you get the chance to observe 3 beautiful primate species in a tranquil Cornwall setting and make a real difference by helping us spread the message that primates live best in the wild and not as pets, as well as encouraging visitors to consider sustainable ways of living. We host volunteers in shared dormitories for 2-5 week placements all year round, and ask for a donation of £40 per week to help us cover the costs of food and accommodation. For more information please email Paul on Paul_Reynolds@wildfutures.org
We are in particular need for all of April and May and then September on-wards this year, and leading into next year.
Some great news! Once my internship finishes in April I will start work as an education officer and primate keeper at Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary in Looe, Cornwall. I will be aiming to work with universities, schools and colleges across the UK (and online across the world) to promote primate conservation, sustainability and environmental education as well as conservation in general and other related topics. I will be achieving this through a variety of mediums including lectures, events, workshops etc. I will also be hoping to create a network of interested parties to not only share information but also to secure volunteers to help us here at the Sanctuary itself.
