More Than Monkeys explores the fascinating world of monkeys through stamps and philatelic materials. Swinging from tree to tree is no monkey business. Their agility allows them to move with ease in the trees to search for food and stay away from predators on the ground. Are these primates clever or is it just “monkey see, monkey do”? This exhibition will provide the answers and separate fact from fable.
Through the self-exploration of stamps, philatelic materials and interactive exhibits, visitors to the exhibition can discover more about monkeys, and, more than just monkeys. This includes tidbits of information relating to pertinent world issues such as deforestation, poaching and conservation, to fun and lesser known facts about these primates and their everyday habits. Over 300 stamps mostly from Asia, Africa, Central and South America, dating 1947, narrate this storyline.
