Do you believe that environmental education is essential for children to learn how to respect and love nature? We at MONA believe this to be true and that is why we have created this summer visit that includes:
- Introduction: Can you imagine that one day, suddenly, someone separate you from your family to close you to live alone in a cage and force you to sneer in front of a lot of strange people?Thus begins the story of Bongo, a story that will take us to know the reality of chimpanzees and the work that Mona Foundation does to change it.
- Craft: Imagine, paint and take with you a great souvenir of your visit to Mona: A Bongo’s badge! This badge will give the little ones a super power: Becoming Bongo’s spokespersons and tell his story all over the world!
- Guided tour: The most awaited moment. You will meet Bongo and the other chimpanzees and macaques and see how they live in their new home.
This visit is only available in Catalan and/or Spanish
Duration of the visit: 1:30h
Timetable: Afternoons in July to be agreed with the Rescue Centre
9€ per person* (from 4 years old)

The MONA Foundation is NOT a center to exhibit animals. We are only open to the public during pre-arranged educational guided tours. If an individual or group arrives at the center without an appointment time, you will not see the animals.
For the best interest of the animals, it is not allowed to be at the center before or after your guided visit.
