Curraghs Wildlife Park Conservation Fund
In the last 2 years (2016-2018) the Conservation fund has paid out over £6,000 to the 'Javan Primate Conservation Project', this project is run by the Aspinall foundation (who operate Howletts and port lympne zoo). This Project rehabilitates Silvery gibbons and Javan langurs into a safe region of forest in Java. The primates they release are often confiscated pets that have been illegally stolen from the forest. Often in a poor state they are rehabilitated in phases to eventually become self-sufficient and wild animals again.Click here to find out more.
We have an ongoing commitment to support the Javan Primate project and intend to make more donations in 2018. We also gave a £200 donation to Thandi's Endangered Species Association helping combat Rhino poaching.
With the help of our visitors we purchased 50 acres of Rain-forest the same size as the Park in the ‘Choco Rain-forest’ in Colombia, this was through the WLT (World Land Trust). £5,000 went to this in 2015/16
