Trentham Monkey Forest is excited to announce that it will re-open again on the 10th of February, after being closed during the winter period.
Monkey Forest is a sanctuary in Stoke-on-Trent where 140 Barbary macaques can simply be themselves within an ancient 60-acre Staffordshire Woodland.
The forest is the monkey’s tranquil home in Trentham, they can go wherever they like within the enclosure as they aren’t restricted by any bars or cages. The monkeys freely roam to preserve their behaviours for conservational purposes.
Guests get to see the monkeys’ fascinating natural behaviours before their very eyes, making it one of the most unique days out to explore in the UK.
The park and conservation go hand-in-hand, as they protect and support the macaque sub-species through the funding of vital conservation projects for Barbary macaques specifically as well as other primates struggling in the wild.
Barbary macaques are unfortunately highly endangered.
The population has decreased by more than 50% in the last 30 years and there are now fewer than 8,000 wild Barbary macaques left.
Tickets start from £8.55 per person and can be booked at www.monkey-forest.com
