Monkey Haven is supported by people just like you. We couldn’t rescue animals without your amazing help.
The charity that pays for everything – and that’s all the costs involved with caring for our animals – is called The Leaf Foundation. Why ‘Leaf’? Well, that stands for Life Enrichment for Animal Fulfilment. When you visit the Haven, have a cuppa in the tea room, or buy your souvenirs in the shop, you’re supporting The Leaf Foundation. So a big THANK YOU from us all!
What do you do with our money?
We help animals! That’s all the animals you’ll meet plus hopefully lots more in the future. Some of them are extremely rare, like the Cotton-Top Tamarins. With your support, we can afford to pay for their food, vet bills, accommodation and lots of treats.
Is there a bigger picture?
Yes! We want to protect the planet. That could mean drawing our visitors’ attention to the destruction of the rainforest or doing our bit by going ‘palm oil free’. Signs and banners throughout Monkey Haven promote these messages. We also jump at the opportunity to talk to schools and groups about conservation and other issues affecting animals in the wild.
Is being a charity important for you?
Yes, it’s a big deal for us. It’s important for us to be non profit making so that we can maximise the impact that we have. If we make money, it’s ploughed straight back into Monkey Haven, to support creatures in crisis.
We can also run appeals at Monkey Haven, such as the Aviary Appeal – and thanks to the generosity of our visitors, the birds now have smart new homes.
It also means that we can claim tax back on Gift Aid donations, at no extra cost to our supporters.
