What is this?

On the first working Monday of every month (Monday is one of my busiest days) I will donate the daily income of Chocolate Tortoise to a selected charity, and post to this blog detailing the charity chosen. This blog is not intended to tell the world how generous I am. I am less generous than many people. The blog is intended to firstly log who I have donated to, and secondly to hopefully inspire others to do the same, or similar. For more information, see my first post.

February 2018 - Monkey & Owl Haven, Isle of Wight

The chosen charity for February 2018 is the Monkey Haven, Isle of Wight (http://www.monkeyhaven.org/)

Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of creating a blog post for each month, rather than grouping them up!

The Monkey Haven on the Isle of Wight is a fantastic place we visited a number of years ago. I think it used to be called the Owl & Monkey Haven - I think they still have a lot of owls there, as well as meerkats, along with a great variety of primates.

They have really lovely enclosures for rescued animals, and the whole place comes across as well run, clean and tidy. They have a great website too.

They also have a great Amazon Wish List for items they can make use of, which is a really great idea - when you donate by buying one of the items on their wish list it really feels like you are helping the animals directly, though I think it does mean they miss out on Gift Aid for those donations.

The monthly donation for February purchased a net swing for the monkeys to have fun on!
