Monkey World


This internationally-acclaimed rescue centre, in 65 acres of beautiful Dorset woodland, is home to over 260 primates. Many have been neglected, kept in unnatural conditions, or experienced unbelievable cruelty. At Monkey World, they can all enjoy the company of their own kind in a safe and natural environment, and some are now part of international breeding programmes for endangered species. 

Currently, Monkey World is open to limited numbers of pre-booked visitors, and to protect our rescued primates’ health and well-being, some services and facilities may be unavailable. Please visit the website to book, and to check on opening and facilities.

During this difficult time, we have been incredibly grateful to those who have supported our rescue operation by “adopting” a monkey or ape. ‘Adoptive parents’ receive a year’s pass to the park, a photograph of their adopted primate, certificate, and copies of the Ape Rescue Chronicle up to three times a year, as well as funding the care of the primates here, and rescues of primates in need.
