...or should that be 'monkeycure' perhaps?

Here is a couple more from the Monkey World day out. This area was really cool, and great for photographers as you go into the enclosure with the lemurs, therefore no fence or glass to shoot through (that is, if there was no rain, like there was that day). It was so cool to see them lined up like this; they then separated and went for feeding time, so I was glad to at least get this shot, although it’s not brilliant. I can’t wait for the good weather as we have decided to go back, this time for me to focus on the photography side of it 

 

Anyway, hope you enjoy.

This dude of a chimp was as close to human as you could get. He casualy strolled across the grass to a sunny spot on the hill. Laid out his blanket and adopted the pose with crossed legs and a very relaxed recline. I bet he'd give the Germans a run for their money in the towel on sunlounger stakes. It never fails to make me smile whenever I look at it. Taken a while back at Monkey World in Dorset.

on holiday this week, relaxing today at monkey world.

 

do you know these guys names ? I think its A-mei on the left

This is Eveline. She is a female chimpanzee and she is 1 of 240 rescued monkeys and apes from the UK and across the world, living at Monkey World in Dorset. Each one has their own story. This is Eveline's:

 

Eveline was rescued from a Dutch Laboratory on 12th February 1999 and she was born on 1st March 1997. At the lab, she was kept in a small cage on her own. When she first joined the sanctuary nursery at 2 years old, she jumped onto the back of another chimp and never let go. She has now joined the adult group and loves playing with the others outside

 

The excellent work done at Monkey World can only continue with financial help. You can join the Primate Adoption Scheme and help save the next life, or you can simply donate ... I'm off to adopt mine right now....

A remarkable Gal.

 

Sally is having a rest after playing chase with Baby Ash, doing the parent thing trying hard not to catch the little one, keeping it real !

This lady has the patience of a saint. She is a remarkable foster mother.

'A man has no reason to be ashamed of having an ape for his grandfather. If there was an ancestor whom I should feel shame in recalling it would rather be a man.' Thomas Henry Huxley.

This is the first of a few photos taken at Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre in Dorset, UK.

 

Monkey World was set up in 1987 by the late Jim Cronin MBE to provide abused Spanish beach chimps with a permanent, stable home. Today Monkey World works in conjunction with foreign governments from all over the world to stop the illegal smuggling of apes out of Africa and Asia. At the park visitors can see more than 230 primates of 15 different species.

 

None of these wonderful primates could ever be released into the wild, as they all suffer from physical and psychological damage.

The apes live in large natural groups in large enclosures, and as it is not principally a zoo, viewing the apes is not always ideal.

 

This is A-mei, a female Bornean Orang-utan. She has a role as a foster mother in the orang-utan crèche.

 

I found opportunities to get good photos difficult, and many had to be taken through thick glass. I did manage a few keepers and will post them over time.

 

Thank you for your comments, and I wish you all a great week ahead.

zoey a golden-cheeked gibbon was rescued from the illegal pet trade and has been living at monkey world in dorset since 2000, she gave birth to kim her daughter in march 2008.

the first time I visited the center and was aware of these guys zoey and her partner jake were showing off their "bouncing baby" to a young couple with their own baby in a pram, there appeared to be a real sense of mutual admiration

Can't say I'm religious but I like that quote.

 

Another shot of Tuan the orang-utan at Monkey World in Dorset. There's a look you get back from chimps and orang-utans (and other apes, I'm sure) that's completely different than that of nearly every other animal. It's the sense of being regarded and evaluated by an altogether more intelligent creature than most people are accustomed to. Unless you work at Monkey World or you have a pet African Grey parrot.

 

Fascinating animals.

 

Please visit and like my Facebook page, where I've yet to post any photos of monkeys, apes, parrots, dolphins or owls.

Zeynep was captured from the wild a the same time as Kuki and they were smuggled into Bodrum together. While Kuki was sold on, Zeynep stayed in Bodrum as a pet until she was around six years old.

Kuki used to perform on a disco boat before being kept as a pet in Turkey.

Both Zeynep and Kuki like in Hananya's group after a reunion in 2004.

One of the Chimpanzees at Monkey World in Dorset.

 

Entered into The Bob - Mono DPI competition with Aperture Woolwich on 7/5/13. This got 2nd place.

 

Entered into the 2013 Finals with Aperture Woolwich and did nothing. The judge thought the background too distracting and suggested a tight crop on the Chimpanzee's head, which to me would ruin the pose with his arm wrapped around him, and his despondent look at being in captivity. But then I'm not a judge, and wtf do I know?!

The light was poor so the photo wasn't very good but it's such a lovely moment that I played around with it. Cherri was rescued from the life of a beach photographers prop, depsite the fact she was still only a baby she was found to have had her jaw broken. Two other attempts at motherhood resulted in her not taking very good care of the babies. This time she had twins, sadly one of them died but she has been a great mum from the start helped by her trusty sidekick - none other than Simon!
