The Monkey Sanctuary Trust is an environmental charity, dedicated to promoting the welfare, conservation and survival of primates, particularly woolly monkeys. These monkeys are third and fourth generation descendants of animals rescued in the 60’s and 70’s, having been brought to England as pets. It cares for four different species of monkeys, all rescued from the UK and international primate pet trades.  It is home to a social colony and over time the monkeys have regained their natural social skills and learnt how to raise their young, communicate and organise their hierarchy, just as they would in the wild.The Trust now provides advice and support for primate rescue centres around the world.

Visitors can also see the Bat Cave and Wildlife Room, and the rare lesser horseshoe bat, which is restricted to South West England. Cornwall is therefore a very important habitat for this endangered species. They use the cellar beneath the house, attracted by the warmth of the oil boiler. This is extremely important during the summer when the females give birth to a single offspring. The colony has been there fore over 20 years.

   

The Sanctuary offers a great day out for all the family, with wildlife gardens, children’s activity room, workshops, gift shop, café and picnic areas.
