Trentham Monkey Forest in Staffordshire is proud to present an evening of Barbary macaque conservation as a climax to their conservation week on Saturday 21st September. Dr. Bonaventura Majolo and Dr. Stuart Semple two experts working with Barbary macaques in the wild will be talking about their work with the monkeys in Morocco as well as answering any of your questions. The conservation evening will run from 5.30-7.30pm, with a limited number of tickets up for grabs! Tickets for the Barbary macaque conservation evening are £5 (all proceeds go to Barbary macaque conservation) and details of how to purchase them are on the website www.monkey-forest.com or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Trentham Monkey Forest will be hosting its second conservation week of the 2013 season between the 14th and 22nd September. During this week the popular visitor attraction will be donating 50 pence from every visitor’s ticket to one of two conservation projects, University of Lincoln research project or the MPC (Moroccan Primate Conservation Foundation), both supporting the Barbary macaque. Visitors will have the chance to find out about the great work being undertaken to protect this endangered species and then choose which project should receive their donation.
Trentham Monkey Forest’s first conservation week in July this year raised a fantastic £872 for the University of Lincoln Research Project and £583.50 for the MPCs Educational School programme.
Trentham Monkey Forest, unique to the UK, is home to 140 free roaming Barbary macaques in a 60–acre forest environment. There are no cages or bars and visitors can watch them wandering across pathways and swinging through the trees overhead, as they would in the wilds of their native Algeria or Morocco.
It’s the perfect opportunity to visit the monkeys, meet our new babies and support a fantastic cause.
