Support from Wild Futures

Wild Futures is a primate welfare and conservation charity based in the UK. As well as running a sanctuary in Cornwall for primates rescued from the pet trade, they also provide support to many organisations that are protecting primates worldwide. We are thrilled to announce that this year Esperanza Verde was granted funding as part of Wild Futures overseas support program.

This grant will allow the team in Peru to build another much needed rehabilitation enclosure. These enclosures are a vital part of our work and provide a safe environment for rescued animals to transition back in to the wild. Like these monkeys pictured, the majority of animals at Esperanza Verde are rescued from the illegal wildlife trade and, after a period of rehabilitation, they are given a second chance at freedom. Thanks to the support of Wild Futures, the team in Peru will be able to begin construction of this much needed enclosure soon. Further updates soon.

Mica became a mum !

Mica, a female capuchin, was taken from the wild as a very small baby. She was confiscated from the wildlife trade and hand raised by our team, before being released back into the wild. She was the very first monkey we rescued and spotting her with a baby justifies all our hard work!
