Wales Ape & Monkey Sanctuary
The Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary rescues and provides a home for many types of unwanted animals, especially primates, such as Chimpanzees, Baboons, Mandrills, Spider Monkeys, Vervets, Capuchins, Mangabeys and Marmosets. The Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary can be found in Abercraf which is situated in the lovely Brecon Beacons National Park area of South Wales, we welcome visitors to see the animals and the work that we do.
Although we specialise in the care and protection of primates we cannot stand by and see other animals in need of help. You will therefore find Wolf Dogs, Horses, Donkeys, Cattle, Pigs and others at our sanctuary. All are equally important members of our extended family. Visitors are welcome to see the animals and the work we do. We undertake a number of rescues from zoos and laboratories where animals have suffered mistreatment and deprivation or are no longer wanted. As they are not equipped for survival in the wild we can only endeavour to make the rest of their lives as enjoyable and stress free as possible. We are eternally grateful to all those kind people who help us to care for the animals in our sanctuary. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to find out what goes on behind the scenes at the Sanctuary? Well here’s your chance! Join our keeping team and experience life as a Keeper for a day. Learn about life at the sanctuary and the animals that you will meet from the people that really know – Our keepers. Get stuck into food preparation, feeding and even mucking out! Best of all spend time with some of the world’s most exotic animals.
Donations from the public, businesses and other organisations are vital to our continued survival and any contribution or other form of support is greatly appreciated, please get in touch with us at The Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary.
