A very successful Polperro
environmental day yesterday.
Hoping to make it an annual
event. Thanks to Sarah from
@wildfutures for her talk on
the dangers to primates due
to climate change, palm oil
production and deforestation.
Consistency and change are, I think, two essential
elements for a charity like Wild Futures. They can
challenge us and be complementary. The political,
environmental and economic landscapes are seemingly
always in flux and we must negotiate these to remain true
to our aims, protecting primates and habitats worldwide.
In the last few months the climate crisis has made the
headlines over and over again. When Sir David Attenborough filmed at our Sanctuary
three summers ago, he said that he was retiring and his production crew joined him to say
goodbye. As we all know, he has far from retired. In fact his films about climate change,
biodiversity and environmental degradation have provided the essential clarion call we
all need to hear.
Wild Futures work is underpinned by education and action, as I hope you can see in this
edition of our newsletter. It’s why we open our Sanctuary doors to the public, why we are
always striving to create interesting volunteer programmes, why we run our university
courses, collaborate with our colleagues in the welfare and conservation world and fund
the overseas projects you read about.
These are our constants and how we focus our priorities, resources and energies is what
must adapt to keep the charity fresh and relevant.
Of course the welfare of the monkeys in our care is always priority. The changing
population, the species and their histories has resulted in us deciding to reduce our
public opening hours; we have to balance welfare, education and finance. The care team
can focus more on the medical, social and physical needs of the monkeys who arrive at
the Sanctuary seriously damaged by their lives as pets. We can expand our training and
educational programmes. But we need to ensure the funds are in place to make it possible
and to respond to every emergency that challenges us.
This is where our supporters have remained the constant - you continue to make it all
possible and we owe you a great deal for this! But we need to grow our amazing family
of supporters and we need you to help: Please share on social media, tell your friends and
colleagues about Wild Futures, make an adoption gift - spread the word!
Thank you for all you do,

The Monkey Sanctuary update
We’ve had a busy few months since our last
update to you, and the time has flown by!
In March, weeper capuchin Olly arrived
at the sanctuary! Olly’s history is a little
unclear, but we believe he was brought
into the UK from another European
country, and kept as a pet in London for
a couple of years. Olly’s owner used to
take him on the London Underground,
and thankfully someone reported them to
the authorities and he was subsequently
rescued. We are thankful to Gentleshaw
sanctuary for caring for Olly before he was
able to come here as his forever home.
He’s immediately got stuck into his
new life at the Sanctuary; calling to and
greeting all of the other monkeys as well
as exploring his enclosure to the fullest!
Once his ‘quarantine’ period was over he
began to socialise with the other weeper
capuchins and is slowly on his way to
becoming a valued member of the weeper
With the highs, we’ve also suffered
a devastating low, when earlier this
year beloved capuchin monkey Kodak
suddenly passed away. We’d noticed that
he’d lost a lot of weight in a short amount
of time, so we took him to the vets to
get checked out, and, sadly, the results
of his check-up showed a terminal heart
condition. To help manage his condition,
we started him on medication straight
away, but he deteriorated quickly and
Kodak passed away peacefully during the
night, surrounded by his friends. We are
heartbroken at the loss but we find peace
in knowing that he lived a happy and
exciting life here at the Sanctuary, with
many great friends. Tam, Kirsty and Joey
definitely felt the loss within their group,
especially as he held such a pivotal role for
them; but this loss brought them together
in ways we never could have imagined,
and they have never been closer. We are
hoping to socialise the three of them with
other capuchins to form a new group, and
we will be spending the next few months
working on that! For now, we remember
Kodak as an inquisitive, courageous,
playful capuchin, whose loud, excitable
greetings to his favourite humans each
morning will never be forgotten.
New to 2019, we made the decision to
reduce our opening days to the public this
year! As a small charity we have to make
sure that our resources are going to where
they are needed most. As we are a sanctuary,
and a forever home to rescued monkeys,
we need to respond to the changing needs
of the monkeys and strike a good balance
between welfare, education, and funding;
and the welfare of the monkeys in our
care has to take priority. Being closed for
longer, we can concentrate on big projects
like building and adapting enclosures
equipped with specially designed catching
systems for easier catches for vet visits, reroping
enclosures to make it different and
interesting for the monkeys, working on
new enrichment programs, and socialising

Promoting the welfare, conservation and survival of primates 3
Beattie, Finley and
Last year we rescued 11 marmosets
from the UK primate pet trade, and
three of those were siblings Beattie,
Finley, and Freya!
Beattie was born in 2016, her owner
had bought a female marmoset to keep
his lone male marmoset company,
and Beattie was their first offspring.
Like the majority of marmoset births,
Beattie was born a twin, however her
twin sadly passed away and Beattie
was raised alone. Finley and Freya
were the next set of twins born in 2017,
but unfortunately they were split from
Beattie and their father, as their owner
was worried about jealousy in such a
This is extremely unnatural for
marmosets; in the wild the father
does the majority of the care for their
babies, and older siblings will help care
for the young to learn such skills for
themselves, so this would have been an
extremely stressful time for all of them,
in adjacent bird cages unable to get to
Eventually Beattie, Finley, and Freya
were put together in one of their tiny
bird-cages. There was very little room
for them to move, no ropes or branches
to walk or swing on, and nothing for
them to forage through.
When they first arrived at the Monkey
Sanctuary, all three of them initially
struggled with the complexity of their
new enclosures as they had never
moved around on anything but the
cage bars before. Thankfully, their
young ages meant that they were
keen and energetic, and before
long they had all mastered the art of
Beattie has taken on the role of family
protector and always makes sure that
her siblings are safe. From time to time
she does like to indulge in a wrestling
game with Finley and Freya, which they
all love! They often spend hours chasing
each other around and jumping into
blanket hammocks for a play-wrestle!
They do still have the odd sibling
squabble though, and none of them are
fond of sharing their food, so they tend
to keep their distance from each other
at feeding times!
Despite Beattie being the family
protector, young Freya has taken on the
role of dominant female; there was a
short period of instability, where the two
girls had to work out how their roles fit
in with each other, but they have now
worked out a good balance and are able
to work together peacefully. Brother
Finley makes sure that the girls still
have a bit of fun; he often encourages
them out in the sunshine to play or
The UK marmoset
Marmosets are seemingly becoming
one of the most popular monkeys to
own as pets in the UK. As there is no
requirement to register that you own
a primate as a pet, it is difficult to
ascertain how many primates are kept
in private ownership. Furthermore,
when it comes to owning a marmoset as
a pet, you do not require a Dangerous
Wild Animals Act licence (DWAA) to
own one as you do with many other
species of primate, and this makes it
nearly impossible to know how many
there are, and the conditions that they
are kept in.
The reason for marmoset’s popularity
in the UK is unclear; however, there
are a couple of theories that may be a
factor as to why. They do not require a
DWAA licence, which means there is no
extra fee to pay, and you do not require
an inspection. As they are small, some
people might assume that they are easy
to care for and do not need a lot of space.
This is not the case.
Pet marmosets are often kept in bird cages
Marmosets are wild, socially complex
monkeys that are perfectly adapted to
live in their natural environment, not as
a pet. In the wild common marmosets
live in extended family groups of 3 to
15 animals. This family group usually
consists of one adult breeding pair and
their offspring. The dominant adults
will be the only members of the group
to produce young; however the rest of
the group will all help take care of the
young. The group will have a territory
of around five hectares which they
defend; they will forage for food within
this territory and use scent marking
to define the borders. This territory is
chosen based on the quantity of gum
trees, and within the territory are set
sleeping trees, usually thick with vines
and foliage for protection, which are
used to sleep in regularly. Their diet
consists of foods such as spiders, tree
sap, bird eggs, and small vertebrates,
and they require a large amount of
ultraviolet light from the sun.
The needs of any primate can never be
met in a domestic situation yet the trade
continues to thrive in the UK.
A victim of the UK primate pet trade
Sadly, over the last three years we are
seeing the demand to rescue marmosets
increase dramatically. In 2017, we were
asked to rescue marmosets 7 times; in
2018 we had 20 requests to rescue. This
year, by May, we’ve already received
10! Plus, these figures show the amount
of requests, not the individual monkeys
that need rescuing. The devastating
truth is that currently we cannot rescue
All other suitable places that can rescue
marmosets are also full. The only way
to help these tiny victims of the trade
is to change the law and end the UK
primate pet trade. Please help us reach
that goal by supporting our ‘Did You
Know’ appeal and together, through
campaigning and raising awareness,
we can make a difference and help end
Thank you for your continued support!
In May we were delighted
to host an afternoon at the
Monkey Sanctuary for our
corporate sponsors, Cireson.
Over the years Cireson have
donated over £32,000 to Wild
Futures and we are extremely
grateful for their continued
support. Having their head
office in America, and their
staff based all over the UK, the
opportunity for them to visit
us is quite rare, so we were
excited to have the chance to
meet more of the wonderful
team that do so much for Wild
Futures and the monkeys that
The afternoon consisted of a
talk about Wild Futures’ vital
work and how we work towards
reaching our charity objectives,
followed by a tour around the
Sanctuary to meet some of the
monkeys, in particular Banjo
whom they adopt!
It was a superb afternoon that
gave us the perfect opportunity
to thank them, and show them
first-hand what their generous
donations help us to achieve.
We had great feedback from
the team saying they found
their time with us really eyeopening,
and the whole
afternoon was very informative
and, sadly, quite shocking to
realise the true extent of the
plight of primates in the UK.
Thank you again Cireson,
for everything you do for

Recipe taken from
How did you first get involved with
I have always had an interest in animal
care, particularly primates, and so I
focused my studies around this. I first
volunteered at the Monkey Sanctuary in
2012 for a five-week placement. I fell in
love with the Sanctuary and decided to
do the year-long internship in primate
care after finishing my studies. Then, in
2015, I got offered a job at Wild Futures
as a full-time primate carer.
What is your role?
I am a primate carer, working with
the capuchins, Barbary macaques and
woolly monkeys. My day-to-day work
includes feeding the monkeys and
cleaning their enclosures, conducting
and observing socialisations within
the capuchin groups, giving out
medication to the monkeys who
require it, giving talks to volunteers,
giving talks to the public during our
open season, educational workshops,
making enrichment for the monkeys,
and assisting in maintaining and reroping
What challenges have you faced during
your time at Wild Futures?
Every morning the monkeys all get a
ball of porridge that includes all of their
daily vitamins within, but even after
four years here at the Sanctuary I can
never seem to get the quantities right
when cooking it and it always come out
either too sticky or rock hard!
What inspires you?
I find interacting with the visitors here
on site very inspirational, whether they
are general public visiting us for the
day or an educational group or our
own volunteers; many people have
little knowledge of the issues here in
the UK regarding primate welfare, and
being able to educate and inform them
through our talks, and the positive
response we often receive, is very
Of course, seeing the change in our
rescued primates as they go from
individuals with physical and social
issues to happy and healthy individuals
in stable social groups is really
What do you hope to achieve in
I hope to continue working with
rescued primates, but also to improve
my carpentry and maintenance skills,
which is another passion of mine. I
would also love to visit other animal
sanctuaries all over the world, to
volunteer and see the fantastic work
that they do!
Spot the Difference
There are 6 to find!
We always need to make sure that our
monkeys have lots of things to do and
think about - anything that helps them
do this is called ‘enrichment’.
There are lots of ways of providing
enrichment - from hiding food to putting
new logs in their enclosures for them to
climb and explore!
Enrichment helps keep monkeys living as
natural a life as possible, even though
they are in captivity.
Without enrichment, monkeys in captivity
can become stressed and bored, so
enrichment is very important to keep
their minds and bodies busy and happy!

Working to end the primate trade and abuse of primates in captivity
to Helping the
Climate change and the devastating
effect it is having on our planet
is a huge topic in the media at
Sad as it is we wholeheartedly
support this coverage. Each and
every one of us can do our bit to
make small and large changes to
our lifestyles to help reduce our
impact on the environment and
We often get asked how people can
help, so we’ve put together three
very simple and common steps
that you can take to make positive
changes to help protect our planet.
1. Travel responsibly – Wherever
possible try and walk or cycle
to wherever you need to go. If
you are going on a longer
journey, try using public
transport where possible.
2. Reduce the amount of meat and
dairy in your diet – Reducing
the amount of meat and dairy
in your diet can hugely reduce
your impact on the environment.
Farmed animals contribute
14.5% of human-generated
greenhouse gas emissions,
which is a staggering amount.
3. Be mindful of waste – reduce,
reuse, recycle! The amount
of waste that we are creating
is astonishing; every product
we buy has an environmental
footprint and could end up in
landfill. Being aware of what
you are purchasing, as well as
reusing and recycling wherever
possible will have a positive
impact. You could also consider
not buying items that are in
single use plastic.
Cycle to work
It’s Time to Bee Happy
There’s been a lot in the media about
how important bees are, and about
their unfortunate decline – but do you
know why they are so important or
what you can do to help?
Bees collect pollen and nectar from
flowers to feed their entire colony,
in doing so they move pollen from
one flower to another which allows
fertilization of these plants – enabling
plants to grow fruits etc. Bees are
essential pollinators; there are more
honey bees than any other species of
bee or pollinating insect, so they do the
majority of the pollinating that occurs.
Bees not only pollinate wild flowers
and plants but do a significant amount
of pollinating of commercial crops as
varied as avocados, blueberries, cotton,
celery, and almonds. Without bees it
would cost farmers a lot more money
to pollinate their crops, the cost of
which would then be passed down to
consumers and would very much affect
the economy. We would also lose the
variety and abundance of wild flowers
that make our countryside so beautiful.
Why are they in danger? There are a
number of factors affecting the decline
of bee numbers worldwide. There has
been massive habitat loss with more
built-up areas constantly being created.
New pesticides are now being found
to be dangerous to bee species and
climate change is also having a negative
impact on bees – changing when they
emerge after winter and also affecting
the timing of the flowering of plants
that the bees rely on for food.
So what can we do to help? It’s not
too late to save bees, and if everyone
does a little to help it will make a
Create a bee paradise in your garden
with bee-friendly plants, such as mint,
Echinacea, lavender, wild lilac, witch
hazel, and poppies. Leave a part of
your lawn to go wild; bees love daisies,
dandelions and clover. If you don’t
have a garden you can have a plant pot
or two on a balcony or any available
outside space with bee-friendly plants.
Don’t use pesticides – they can harm
bees or other insects. Some of these
insects leave sweet secretions that bees
may eat, and all will play their part in
the ecosystem. Hence using pesticides
can cause unnecessary harm to your
local bee population.
Mint - a bee friendly plant
Create a drinking area for them – they
just need a little bit of water, which you
can create with a shallow container –
put stones, pebbles and twigs in it for
places to rest and drink from. And if
you ever see a drowsy looking bee they
might need a pick me up – some sugar
water can perk them up and send them
on their way again – just put some in
a small accessible pot near where you
If everyone does just a little bit to help,
together we can make a big difference
to the small insect that does a gigantic
job – let’s help them bee happy again!!!
The European Voluntary Service (EVS)
scheme, which we’ve been a part of for a
few years, allows young people to travel
to other countries and volunteer for nonprofit
organisations, whilst learning and
developing new skills in an area they’re
interested in. We offer EVS volunteer roles
with us in primate care, administration,
education, and maintenance.
Here’s what a couple of our current
EVS interns have to say about their
Primate Care Team
Where are you from? Barcelona, Spain.
What made you want to do EVS with
Wild Futures? I wanted to improve
my English, but also in a place where
I could do some environmental work at
the same time. I had some experience
with primate care, so I knew what to
expect about working in a sanctuary.
What is your average working day like?
I care for the Barbary macaques and/
or the woolly monkeys, and a typical
day can consist of cleaning enclosures,
moving the animals through runways,
feeding and making enrichment.
Around those core jobs, I give talks,
pick leaves for the monkeys, and do
daily behavioural observations as well
general maintenance work.
What do you enjoy most about doing
EVS? The thing that I like the most is
having the opportunity to be abroad for
a long time, knowing a lot of different
people and learning a new culture
while practising English.
What do you hope to do in the future?
I’d like to do a master’s in biodiversity
management and continue with
Where are you from? I am from
Schafflund, which is in Northern
Germany not far from the Danish border.
What made you want to do EVS with
Wild Futures? I always wanted to spend
time abroad, speak another language
and get out of my comfort zone. Wild
Futures was one of the most fascinating
projects I read about when looking for
an EVS position.
The combination of speaking English
fluently, living in the beautiful region
of Cornwall and working with animals
to give them a better life – what more
could you want?
What is your average working day
like? My morning starts with cleaning
enclosures. In the afternoon I have lots
of different jobs! I give talks about the
monkeys and the primate pet trade. I
take care of the education rooms.
I do daily observations on the
monkeys, learning their characters and
behaviours. I work on presentations
and informative materials. I also give a
variety of educational workshops to the
other volunteers. But there’s a lot more
to do – so I never get bored!
What do you enjoy most about doing
EVS? Living at the Sanctuary is a unique
experience. You live with many people
from other countries and find a lot out
It teaches you how to make very quick
friends, speak with strangers, challenge
yourself and get better at what you are
doing every day.
What do you hope to do in the future?
I will perhaps study Law in Germany.

Thanks to your support, we were
delighted to be in a position to offer
small grants to two projects in 2018;
Merazonia in Ecuador and Esperanza
Verde in Peru.
The enclosure is designed so that
monkeys can be shut off in various
compartments for cleaning in order to
avoid interfering with the group, and
prevent interaction between humans
and monkeys. They are hoping to
release their capuchins into the wild, as
they have done with some of their other
primate species this year, but in the
meantime they need more space.
Don’t forget, another way to help Wild
Futures and support the monkeys is
through our online shop! We have lots
of different things for sale such as soft
toys, Wild Futures clothing, mugs, tea
towels and much more!
With all proceeds going towards helping
us to care for the monkeys at the
Monkey Sanctuary, as well as campaign
against the cruel primate pet trade in the
UK, you know that your purchase will
directly help the work we do!

Adopt a monkey:
Merazonia is the only wildlife centre
licensed by the Ecuadorian Ministry
of Environment as a rescue and
rehabilitation centre. They are situated
in primary and secondary rainforest
in the Amazon basin and receive a
variety of illegally trafficked wildlife,
many of which are primates. Their
focus is to rescue, rehabilitate, and
release primates that are endemic to
their region such as woolly monkeys,
red howler monkeys, saddle-back
tamarins, and white fronted capuchins.
They invite volunteers to come and
help them with their work and cover
their basic monthly running costs, and
they rely on grants and donations for
any bigger projects and building costs.
Merazonia applied for funding to our
small grants scheme for an enclosure
extension for their rescued capuchins.
Due to the demand of rescue individuals
increasing, they needed to adapt their
Esperanza Verde is a wildlife rehabilitation
centre which rescues a large number
of animals confiscated from the illegal
trade. Their mission is to rehabilitate
and release native wildlife, as well as
reforest areas of the jungle previously lost
to farming. Esperanza Verde applied for
funding from us for a new soft-release
enclosure (an enclosure that allows a
gradual transition back into the wild).
They often rescue very young primates
(woolly monkeys are one of the most
commonly trafficked animals in the
region) that need to be introduced to the
other youngsters that are already at the
centre. They need a new enclosure where
these monkeys can go and safely get to
know the others and their surroundings,
before being released to join them. The
enclosure will also serve as a space for
monkeys that will spend their days in the
jungle, but are not yet ready to live in the
wild full time. We were able to give both
of these projects funding at the end of
2018, and we want to say a huge thank
you to our wonderful supporters for
helping us make that happen. We will
receive an update about their projects
soon, and when we do we will let you
know how they’re going!
From £3 a month or £36 a year your
money will help provide a forever
home for monkeys rescued from the
UK primate pet trade. It will also
help us with our vital education and
campaign work to raise awareness
about the plight of primates in the
UK and to bring about a change in
the law to protect these animals.

Fundraise for the monkeys
Fundraising is not only an amazing
opportunity to raise vital funds for
Wild Futures, but is also a great
opportunity to raise awareness
about the work we do and why
primates should not be kept as pets.
No matter how big or small your
fundraising is, every little helps, and
it creates the perfect scenario for
people to ask questions and become
more aware of the plight of primates
in the UK. If you’re struggling for
ideas on how to fundraise here are
a few suggestions:
• Host a bake sale at your school
• Do a sponsored walk or a

Thank you to our supporters
With the many highs and lows we have had at the
Sanctuary in the last six months, it has seemed a very
long winter! But one thing that is always consistent
is the support from you, our wonderful supporters!
As always, it would not be possible for us to do
our work without you, and with your help we have
continued building and maintaining enclosures at the
Sanctuary, rescued Olly, and provided small grants to
overseas projects. Everything that you do, big or small,
enables us to continue our work. All your help is
incredible, from your food donations for the monkeys,
to the money you donate that helps us improve the
lives of the monkeys and to continue to campaign and
educate against the UK primate pet trade. We really
could not do our work without you. We want to say a
huge thank you to each and every one of you!
We hope that all of you will enjoy the summer months
ahead (fingers crossed it appears!) as the monkeys
certainly will, and we are excited to see what the
next few months have in store!
