Monkey Haven - Primate Rescue Centre

Attractions

Review

Monkey Haven based here on the Isle of Wight, initially a personal hobby of its founder, Don Walser, has evolved into a primate rescue centre and one of the island's premier attractions. Founded in 1999, it not only provides sanctuary to primates but also hosts a variety of birds, paying homage to its family-run origins. The dedication and affection towards the care of its residents are deeply felt, making a visit here not just an outing but an experience of empathy and understanding towards these animals. Don Walser's vision, which originally started in his shed back in Northamptonshire, has created a haven where the welfare of primates and birds is prioritized, earning him and his team immense pride. This centre stands as a testament to the impact of passion and commitment to animal welfare, making it a must-visit for anyone interested in primates, conservation, and the natural world.
