Monkey World

Monkey World

Set amongst the woodland of Dorset lays 65 acres of sanctuary for over 150 primates.


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.

Monkey World was set up in 1987 by Jim and Alison 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 visitors can see more than 150 primates of 15 different species.

Park Lodge Bed and Breakfast is 7 miles or a 15 minute drive from Monkey World.
