Celebrate World Chimpanzee Day at Monkey World

When? 11 Jul 2020 to 14 Jul 2020
Where? Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre - Wareham

  • Celebrate World Chimpanzee Day at Monkey World

Over the weekend of the 33rd anniversary of the first chimps arriving at Monkey World, learn about their rescues and journey to the park, and their plight in the wild, with talks, stalls and trails!

As well as all of this, there will be exclusive talks on social media and at the park about our wonderful chimps! Follow signs on the day to find all the activities!

The chimpanzees live in four groups, with the majority rescued and rehabilitated into families for the first time since being stolen from the wild as infants.
Combining fun with conservation and animal education, half-hourly talks at the park explain all about man's closest living relative. Visitors can see the stars of TV's 'Monkey Life', then 'monkey around' in the south's largest Great Ape play area for children with its huge variety of swings, slides, and climbing frames. The children's Activity Centre will also be open throughout the weekend, where kids can make a present for the primates, and create their own sand art to take home with them!
