Trentham Monkey Forest
Trentham Monkey Forest in Stoke On Trent is one of my favourite places that I always enjoy visiting because of how close you get to the monkeys. One of the things that makes places such as Monkey Forest more special and exciting for visitors is you get to watch the Barbary Macaque Monkeys in a beautiful woodland setting and sometimes they are walking distance from you. Spring and Summer is a lovely time to visit the park because of breeding season and up until Autumn they normally have baby monkeys in the forest who love playing and leaping from trees. One of the things Monkey Forest hope to do is raise awareness for Barbary Macaque Monkeys who are endangered in Morocco and one day release them back into the wild. Their used to be 23,500 macaques, today there are less then 10,000 in the wild. One of the conservation charities Monkey Forest work with is the Moroccan Primate Conservation Foundation who do workshops and conservation projects in Morocco. Some of the conservation work they have done is anti poaching and trying to stop the illegal pet trade which are some of the threats they face in the wild.
