If you are passionate about animals, especially monkeys and want to make a difference in their lives, then volunteering at International Primate Rescue is for you. The rewards and benefits are two-fold, we give you an experience of a lifetime and you assist us with the daily care of the animals.
As long as you are at least 18 years old you are welcome. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for work experience, a student on a gap year, want a break from your office job, are retired, or you just want to get away from it all for a while. Join us and experience a unique once in a lifetime opportunity!
Our volunteer program will give you a fascinating wildlife experience whilst you learn about primate behaviour and animal care. You will get hands on experience with all the different species of primates at the sanctuary. We currently have Capuchins, Macaques, Patas monkeys, Squirrel monkeys, Mona monkeys, Tamarins, Marmosets and Grey Mouse lemurs. But as cute as they are you also need to be prepared to get down and dirty, as along with the pleasure of interacting with our animals, their enclosures also need cleaning and maintaining!
During your time with us you will get to know our staff and work side by side with them. More importantly, you will get to know our monkeys and all their different personalities
Volunteering with us costs 215 gbp per week.
