Monkey Life

Follow the day-to-day lives of the 160 monkeys, chimps, orangutans and other primates that live in one of the largest rescue centres in the world: the Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre in Dorset. Filmed over the course of a year, the series explores the rescue and rehabilitation stories of some of the world's most abused and neglected primates, and finds out how animal manager Jeremy and the keepers Emma, Paul and Mike, look after their furry charges. The series recounts the centre's funniest and most shocking stories, alongside animal dramas of all kinds. 'Monkey Life' also documents the hard work of the late Jim Cronin and his wife, Alison, in their mission to stop the illegal smuggling of these animals. Jim founded Monkey World, he and Alison built it up from a small refuge to a 65-acre wildlife park that is now home to more than 160 rescued primates and 15 different species.
