LATEST NEWS + RESEARCH

Monkey Town… 

ExperiCo are delighted to be in a position to help Monkey Town with weekly donations of post-trial fruit. Monkey Town has been closed to the public since the lock down in March and without an income from visitors are struggling to buy food for the primates and cover running costs. Every bit helps and donations are urgently needed to support Monkey Town until they can open their doors to the public again. https://www.backabuddy.co.za/monkey-town
