Monkeys in Barbados

Where can I see Green Monkeys while in Barbados?

• Wild Monkeys can be seen all over the island, often where fruit trees grow in abundance. 

Barbados Wildlife Reserve has a troop of monkeys. Best time to interact with them is during feeding around 2pm.

Is it safe to touch or pet a monkey in Barbados?

• No. Please keep your hands to yourself. Monkeys in Barbados are wild and often carry diseases and bacteria in their mouths. Touching/Playing/Holding a monkey may get you bit which can cause serious infections.

Can Green Monkeys be pets?

• Short answer - NO, they absolutely can not.
There are circumstances where monkeys have become pets, often to individuals claiming to have rescued the monkey when its mother is shot or killed in some way. The owners that truly care for their monkeys will tell you the relationship is nothing but heartbreak in the end. The monkey often doesn't adapt well to captivity, and even if they do, at a certain point they will grow too big to be a cuddly pet and will become a danger to themselves and their owners. At this point the monkey needs to be released but has no where to go and would never survive in the wild on its own. The alternative is living a caged life which is never suited for a monkey. 

Is it ok to support individuals who have them as pets?

• No. Pets should not be exploited for personal gain. Please do not pay anyone to have your photo taken with monkeys or for an opportunity to pet/play with the monkey. There are a few genuine owners rescuing monkeys but these endorsements only fuel the fire for bad people to continue to rip baby monkeys away from their families for personal gain.
