Ways to Donate

Donate Food and Fun

For any primates who live in sanctuaries, it is vitally important that they are offered a myriad of opportunities as often as possible, to engage in enrichment activities. When living in the wild, a primate’s day would be vastly different, involving challenges for their survival throughout their days.

As part of our enrichment program, Lakeview Monkey Sanctuary offer the opportunity for the primates in our care, to forage for food and this is where you come in by donating to create a food party!

Veggie Party


By donating £20 you can enable us to buy delicious fresh vegetables that we can hide around a primate’s enclosure, to encourage them to forage.

Dried Fruit and Nut Party


By donating £30 you can enable us to buy dried fruits and nuts which will be hidden in enrichment devices positioned around a primate’s enclosure, to encourage them to problem solve to find the items.

What Your Donation Could Buy

£5 buys a metre of rope.

An active monkey is a happy monkey. Rope gives them exercise as well as entertainment, but they use it so much, it wears out.

£10 buys 2 boxes of meal worms and 2 boxes of locusts.

The monkeys love them and they are packed full of essential vitamins, honestly!

£25 buys a 12 kilo sack of primate pellets.

This will last approximately one month.

£50 would feed 11 monkeys.

This would last 4 days.

£75 pays for 6 Kong dog toys for enrichment.

To be content, a monkey needs a happy, healthy mind as well as body and these toys help with their mental stimulation.

£100 buys 10 bales of shavings for night quarters.

This will last four weeks.

£2,000 pays the heating bill for 3 months.

Some rescued monkeys come to the Sanctuary with tails and fingers missing from frostbite.
