Call for new FIWY Trustees!

FIWY UK is looking to add to our team of trustees, to help guide CIWY through these unprecedented times. The trustee role is a volunteer position — you would work with the rest of the team to help maximise CIWY’s profile on a global scale, whilst also helping to develop new funding streams for the organisation.

We’re ideally looking for individuals with experience in fundraising and/or financial management. Whether you’re a past volunteer that would like to continue to support CIWY, or new to the organisation with useful skills, we’d love to hear from you.

Details on how to apply here.

Friends of Inti Wara Yassi UK (charity # 1124355) raises funds on CIWY’s behalf, and helps in the administration of various tasks such as:

  • Receiving and processing online donations that help cover the operational costs of the three sanctuaries, as well as one-time costs of projects such as new enclosures.
  • Creating and maintaining CIWY’s website, online shop, and online newsletter.
  • Creating and managing the “Sponsor an Animal” program.
  • Collaborating in the annual Pete the Monkey Festival in France, and organising other events across the UK.


FIWY UK has provided considerable support to CIWY over the years. Some of its most notable achievements include the following:

  • Raising over £200,000 (US $260,000) in donations to CIWY since 2008.
