3. Monkey World, Dorset, England
The founders of Monkey World are dedicated to rescuing monkeys, chimpanzees and other primates, some who have spent as many as twenty years as captives in labs. The sanctuary has rescued monkeys and apes from all over the world that have been abused, neglected or orphaned. The renowned center also works with foreign governments to stop the illegal smuggling of these intelligent mammals. Visits and sponsored adoptions help support the center’s efforts.
