Set amongst the woodland of Dorset lays 65 acres of sanctuary for over 250 primates of over 20 different species. Monkey World was set up in 1987 by Jim Cronin to provide abused Spanish beach chimps with a permanent, stable home.
Today, Monkey World works in conjunction with foreign governments from all over the world to stop the illegal smuggling of apes out of Africa and Asia. At the park, the primates are rehabilitated into natural living groups with others of their own kind.
Visitors can see that stars of TV's 'Monkey Life' and 'Monkey Business' then 'monkey around' in the south's largest 'Great Ape' adventure play area!
