Who you looking at? Capuchin Monkey

This Old Gent of a Capuchin Monkey is at Monkey World Ape rescue centre in Dorset England.

 

They have 84 capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella) at the park. Most came from a Chilean laboratory in 2008 but several were rescued from the UK pet trade.

 

Monkey World assists governments around the world to stop the smuggling of primates from the wild.

 

At the Center refugees of this illegal trade as well as those that have suffered abuse or neglect are rehabilitated into natural living groups
