Wild Futures is a UK registered charity founded on over five decades of experience as a leader in the field of primate welfare and conservation, environmental education, and sustainable practice. Our Sanctuary is the only one in Europe to be accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, in recognition of our dedication to the highest welfare standards and our holistic ethos. Wild Futures is a board member of the European Alliance of Rescue centres and Sanctuaries, EARS.
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.
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.
Wild Futures aims to:
- Promote the welfare and conservation of primates
- Offer a home for life to primates in need of rescue and rehabilitation
- Work to end the trade in primates for any purpose and abuse of primates in captivity
- Conserve and restore natural habitats in the UK and abroad through skills sharing, funding support, education and sustainable practices
