Wild Futures is the only UK primate welfare and conservation charity rescuing, campaigning, educating and providing sanctuary to primates in need. We also support projects overseas, working to protect primates and habitats worldwide.
Each year the Trust educates thousands of visitors on monkey life in the wild and in captivity, on the ethics and problems of captivity, about ideas for rehabilitation as well as other animal welfare and conservation issues.
We host up to 10 volunteers at a time, all year round, in shared accommodation at The Monkey Sanctuary in Cornwall, UK. Short-term placements run from 2-6 weeks and long-term for up to 3 months. No special qualifications are needed, we just ask for volunteers to be enthusiastic and hard-working with a general concern for animals and the environment. You need to be over the age of 18 and have a good working knowledge of the English language. (Residential)
