Monkey Life Series 16: Wareham show is back this Sunday

MONKEY Life, the TV programme filmed at Monkey World in Wareham, returns this Sunday for its sixteenth series. 

The show follows Dr Alison Cronin and the team, as they rescue primates in need from around the globe, rehabilitating them in Dorset with a safe, stable home for life. 

With over 250 primates of 25 species, Monkey World is the largest primate rescue operation in the world. 

The programme is one of the longest running docu-soaps on TV, starting its former incarnation, Monkey Business, in 1998. 

Series 16 follows Argentinian chimpanzees Sasha and Kangoo as they’re introduced to their rowdy new family at the park, UK pet trade rescues, and Alison’s journey to collect an orphaned orangutan.

Filmed over the course of a year, it sees the team make tough decisions and say goodbye to old friends, all alongside the daily antics of familiar faces viewers will know well.
