Monkey Mobile helps Dorset Sanctuary spread the important conservation message

Friday 7th June 2013

MONKEY BUSINESS: The Monkey Mobile

IMPORTANT conservation messages are being spread as staff at a Dorset attraction hit the road in the 'Monkey Mobile'.

Thrilled Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre staff have taken delivery of a specially-branded BMW car which will help the sanctuary's education team spread the aprk's message into classrooms across Dorset.

The car, emblazoned with images of primates from the Wool rescue centre, has been sponsored by Westerly Dorchester.

Monkey World operations manager Shelley Fletcher, said: "The key to the future of primate conservation is to educate children.

"We launched our eduation packs about six months ago and the guys have been doing a fantastic job going around local schools and youth groups, but they've had to use their own cars.

"Now we can spread the Monkey World message much further afield."

She added: "I reached out to Westerly Dorchester and they were really receptive. A lot of companies say they'll help us, but when it comes down to it, for one reason or another. a lot of them can't, but we do understand this.

"However, the guys at Westerly delivered in spectacular style. I've had my first drive in it and it is beautiful. I cannot thank them enough."

The Monkey Mobile, as it's been dubbed by park staff, has already been used on a trip to Bovington Primary School.
