Primate Population Pressures Prompt Call to Expand Ubudís Monkey Forest Complex

(12/13/2013) The manager of Ubud’s Popular Monkey Forest, located neat the heart of that community’s business center, says more space is needed to accommodate the burgeoning primate population.

Putu Suartika, the man in charge of the monkey sanctuary, told Bisnis Bali that more living space is needed for the primates and more parking space for the many visitors to the popular tourist attraction.

Suartika said that any improvement in the monkey forest’s area and facilities could be accompanied by a increase in the cost of admission, noting that no increase in entrance fees has taken place over the past four years.

The monkey forest is providing English lessons for those who work at the attraction and has installed a computer at the entrance gate.

The manager of the forest estimates that 80% of the park's visitors is comprised of foreign tourists.
