Monkey Award!

My fellow monkeys, I am pleased to announce that Monkey World has won an award!

I can't think of a human founded organisation more deserving.

Full details from the Bournemouth Echo.

MONKEY World, the Wool primate rescue centre, has been honoured for its "selfless liberating and caring for our animal friends".

The unique Shining World Compassionate Award, from the Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association, was presented to Monkey World director Dr Alison Cronin on Thursday.

A cheque for $5,000 accompanied the plaque, which was presented by association representative Ruth Stannard.

Dr Cronin said: "It is just a fantastic award, one that recognises acts of kindness towards the animal kingdom, which at Monkey World we feel is really important.

"I am honoured and pleased, especially as this award is given for acts of kindness, which is something we need more of in the world."

New Monkey!

A new monkey has arrived! He is currently taking part in a training course before departing for his new home, where he will entertain and educate humans in the Way of the Monkey.

We wish him every success in his future life.
