Habitat destruction is decreasing the natural habitat of squirrel monkeys, however they are currently common throughout their natural range. They are captured for the pet trade, and sometimes for medical research.

How do I adopt a squirrel monkey?

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase from the options below and then make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because some of our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. If your adopted species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your adoption to another species.
