What A Load Of Monkey Business

Las week Richard and I decided to take some time out for ourselves and to take a little trip to the coast. After all, I don’t know if you have notice but we (when I say we – I mean the whole of the UK) are in the midst of a little heatwave. Yeah it have been a scorcher, I mean 34c scorcher. I’m not complaining, In fact I’m trying to enjoy it while I can – hence why we decided to take a little trip down to Weymouth, Devon.

But before we went to the coast we stopped off at Wool and visited the Monkey World park. It basically a monkey rescue and protection enclosure and you can wander around and see the various monkeys.

I think those poor monkeys were feeling the heat as much as we were. It was unbearably hot that day! If it was bad for us human – can you imagine how those poor animals must feel! Due to that they were very docile and just lay around in the shade trying to keep cool.  At the park we’re not allowed one to one with the monkeys as they were all rescued  and might get a little upset with human so we saw them in their various closure.However as always in these kind of place that didn’t stopped people tapping on the window trying to get their attention, for god sake people stop banging on the window and let them rest easy in the shade. It’s a pet peeve of mine – they are wild animals and not circus performers. One more thing I will say’ their enclosure did look very roomy and big enough for them, so you don’t have to worry – they won’t in small cages.

Lastly throughout the day we cooled down with various ice creams and water throughout the day and just enjoyed looking around.

If you like us and love monkeys (who doesn’t love monkeys) then I do recommend Monkey World.

    I always have mixed feelings about these types of places. I love the animals and know they need safe havens, but as you mentioned- the way people treat them is infuriating. It makes you wonder who the real monkeys are! 😉 Beautiful job on the photographs.

  • There was a big bloody sign saying ”Don’t bang on the window” – what do people? Bang on the F***king window. It was a very hot day and these poor monkeys was desperately trying to keep cool (I did see them being fed ice lolly and cold water) and wasn’t in the mood to preform for us human. Urgh it just infuriate me.
    Thank you for your kind words on the photos. xx

    Aw, those people need to respect wild animals and their welfare. Maybe next time, I’ll find a way to bang on these people’s windows. J/k. I hope the monkeys are surviving the heat there and I hope you guys are too.

    Those poor babies, hopefully they had plenty of shade and water, definitely do not need people tapping and banging on the windows when they must feel worse in the heat than we do. Your photographs are beautiful 🙂

    The monkeys are so cute. Yes the heat takes its toll on the poor animals too. Good to know that they are well taken care of.

    I don’t believe in zoos I wished them to be in their natural habitat…
