The Numbers: Wild Futures

The figures behind the charity which promotes humane behaviour towards animals, particularly the woolly monkey

£336k: The charity's income for the year ending 31 March 2009, compared with £415,000 the previous year. The charity says the fall in income was due mainly to a drop in the number of visitors to its Monkey Sanctuary in Cornwall because of wet weather in July and August 2008

£21,900: The cost of generating voluntary income, giving the charity a fundraising ratio of 10p in the pound. The previous year's ratio was 9p in the pound

£269k: Free reserves at year-end. The charity says its target was to hold £50,000 of free reserves in bank accounts, but does not say whether it feels the overall reserves level is appropriate

£60k: No employee was paid more than this

20: The number of monkeys rescued by the charity in the past decade. The charity estimates that more than 5,000 monkeys are kept as pets in the UK and is campaigning to end this practice

£1.05m: The charity's total reserves. Most of this comes from a revaluation reserve of £766,000, accrued from a rise in the value of the charity's property.
