About our primates

welcome to TAMHF

The Touch a Monkey’s Heart Foundation (TAMHF) sanctuaries - named Monkeyland and Birds of Eden - provide the primates and birds who live here with a stable environment, one with permanence and where there is definitely no exploitation.

At Monkeyland and Birds of Eden, care exceeds the regulations regarding animal welfare. Monkeyland and Birds of Eden is, most importantly, a place where primates and birds are rehabilitated both physically and emotionally.

At TAMHF we strive to achieve an effective balance between conservation and economic reality. It is therefore tourism driven and totally sustainable. A primate and/or bird safari is much more than just an unforgettable forest adventure; it is the vehicle that allows you to become part of our rehabilitation and care process.

It is because of sanctuaries such as Monkeyland and Birds of Eden which go beyond idealism, and who strive to do something positive, that we can look forward to a more optimistic future.

"Our children may save us if they are taught to care properly for the planet; but if not, it may be back to the Ice Age or the caves from where we first emerged. Then we'll have to view the universe above from a cold, dark place. No more jet skis, nuclear weapons, plastic crap, broken pay phones, drugs, cars, waffle irons, or television. Come to think of it, that might not be a bad idea. "
