Monkey World – Ape Rescue Centre is a 65-acre park in the heart of the Dorset countryside and is home to over 250 primates of 20 different species.  Many have been neglected, kept in unnatural conditions or experienced unbelievable cruelty.  Some are now part of international breeding programmes for endangered species.  here they can all enjoy the company of their own kind in a safe,natural environment.

Monkey World was set up in  1987 by Jim Cronin to provide a permanent, stable home for abused Spanish beach chimpanzees.  Today, his wife, Dr Alison Cronin, continues to work with foreign governments worldwide to stop the illegal smuggling of primates from the wild.
