Set in the Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre in Dorset, UK, Monkey Life follows the nail-biting rescue and rehabilitation stories of some of the most abused and neglected monkeys in the world. The unwavering hard work of Jim and Alison Cronin in their ongoing mission to stop the illegal smuggling of primates from the wild. Refugees and chimps that were found abused in laboratories, circus tents or as photographers’ props, are rehabilitated here and given the chance to spend the rest of their days being cared for in a natural environment.  

Series 9 - Episode 2

In today's programme, the primate care staff suspect golden-cheeked gibbon Kim is about to give birth but after several hours and no change in her condition the vet is called in. It's a tense time when Kim has to undergo an emergency caesarean. Aging saki monkey Jethro gets a surprise when new companion Chloe arrives from France but it seems Jethro isn't the romantic type. At Levar's woolly monkey enclosure there are treats on offer, pine cones packed with raisins, nuts and seeds and its all gone nuts in Franco's capuchin group.

Series 9 - Episode 1

'Monkey Life' returns for another action packed series. Alison rescues Ruby, a marmoset with attitude and a bit of a weight issue. She has been well cared for but this free ranging marmoset needs company of her own kind. Back at the park there's a group of primates who've had a weight problem in the past, but life is now blossoming for the residents at the stumpie house. Orphan orangutan babies Rieke and Bulu Mata discover the ups and downs of life in the nursery and after some renovations at Hananya's chimpanzee enclosure, its young Thelma who leads the way.

Series 8 - Episode 8

There's great excitement when chimp Cherri finally gives birth to twin baby girls. Simon takes on the role of bodyguard to the newborns warning the others off if they get too close, and low ranking Arfur is also very attentive. New arrival woolly monkey, Pacaja , takes a shine to leader Oaska. And golden-cheeked gibbons Tien and Kim's relationship continues to blossom when they're allowed out into their new tree filled enclosure.

Series 6 - Episode 2

This time on Monkey Life, Jeremy's in Spain to pick up baby orangutan Silvestre who gives him the run around! Meanwhile back at Monkey World, will chimp Kiki brave it outside after years locked up in a cage? And an overnight snowfall brings a frosty visitor to Hananya's chimps.
