Wild Futures: the primate welfare and conservation charity

Posted 3 April by The Big Give Ended
Wild Futures primate welfare and conservation charity. Reg charity 1102532

We are looking for trustees to join us in protecting primates and habitats worldwide.

Our Vision:
A world in which people understand and respect the welfare and conservation needs of primates and habitats, where primates have a wild future and the need to provide sanctuary for victims of the pet trade has passed.

Our Mission:
Wild Futures promotes the welfare and conservation of primates and habitats worldwide. In particular we are working to see an end to the UK primate pet trade while providing sanctuary to primates in need. We deliver far reaching education programmes to engage all sectors of the community on primates, conservation and environmental issues.

Aims: Protecting Primates and Habitats Worldwide  
Promoting the welfare, conservation and survival of primates.
Operating a sanctuary to care for victims of the UK primate pet trade.
Working to end the primate trade and abuse of primates in captivity.
Conserving natural habitats through education and sustainable living.

Wild Futures is the only UK charity with the holistic approach that combines an educational, environmental and sustainability remit dedicated to promoting the welfare, conservation and survival of our closest living relatives, the non-human primates; working to end the primate trade and abuse of primates in captivity, promoting the rehabilitation of captive primates and the preservation of those in the wild, whilst operating a sanctuary for primates in need of a long term home. The thriving UK primate pet trade means that Wild Futures’ knowledge, expertise and resources are increasingly in demand. Wild Futures continues to be instrumental in striving to protect primates in the UK through its efforts in raising awareness of primates with key decision makers and the public alike.

Our high welfare standards, sustainable ethic and educational work means that Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary is the only sanctuary in Europe to be accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS). We are also a founding partner and board member of the European Alliance of Rescue centres and Sanctuaries (EARS), in keeping with our ethos of sharing and learning best practice whilst campaigning for better protection for primates.
