Adopt a Squirrel Monkey

Adopting a squirrel monkey at Newquay Zoo will make a real contribution to the daily care of our primates and wildlife conservation work across the world.

Our adoption packs make a fantastic gift for animal lovers of any age. Prices start from as little as £35 per year, with three different packs to choose from.

Squirrel monkeys are considered to be one of the cleverest monkeys due to having a large brain compared to the size of their body! You can find Newquay Zoo’s group of squirrel monkeys down Monkey Walk, next to the capuchins and titi monkeys.

Habitat destruction is decreasing the natural habitat of these monkeys, however they are common throughout their natural range. They are captured for the pet trade and sometimes for medical research.


How do I adopt a squirrel monkey?

First choose the adoption package that you wish to purchase online from the options below and then go on make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because some of our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. If your adopted species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your adoption to another species.

Please note that our adoption gift packs are only available for UK delivery.
