Adopt a Monkey
It is not known exactly how
many species and sub-species of monkey there are on the planet, however
it is estimated there are currently around 264 although over the past
few decades this number has started to decline at an alarming rate.
This decline can be
attributed to four main reasons, hunting for meat, the destruction of
habitat and to a lesser degree their killing to use body parts for
'traditional medicine' and finally from deaths resulting from injuries
sustained whilst attempting to capture them for sale as pets.
There are currently fifty
two species of monkey that are facing extinction over the next few
years, unless people such as yourself are prepared to dig deep and
sponsor a monkey through the People’s Trust for Endangered Species.
This adopt a monkey gift pack includes:
A welcome letter and explanation of the
Gift registration form
Information about the People's Trust for Endangered Species
A booklet about the endangered monkeys and apes
- Presentation certificate
- An A3 wall map picturing all of the animals
