Volunteer With Monkeys

Volunteering with Monkeys

Volunteer with monkeys on your gap year and gain an unique insight into the world of these delightful animals. Amongst the list of endangered species worldwide monkeys usually top the list. Approximately half of the two hundred and sixty four species of monkeys that live in the wild are threatened and 24 species are endangered due to hunting, destruction of natural habitats, introduction of foreign habitats and illegal trade.

Travel to Africa on your gap year to volunteer with monkeys and your help will aid in protecting 45% of Africa’s monkey population now threatened or critically endangered.  Travel to Madagascar and work on projects helping the Silky Sifaka monkey, critically endangered from hunting and illegal logging. The Roloway monkey indigenous to Ghana is thought of as the second most endangered specie in all of Africa due to environmental destruction and hunting.

Volunteers carry out regular tasks such as preparing food for the primates, cleaning enclosures, observing and monitoring behaviour, primate relocation and introduction and even hand rearing baby monkeys if the mothers are unable to do so.  If you would like to volunteer with monkeys on your gap year then check out our product listings.
