Troops of Monkeys
Lesser Bush Baby
Silke and her incredible team of staff & volunteers
We concentrate mainly on Vervet monkey rehabilitation, taking in injured and orphaned monkeys, forming troops and finding monkey friendly game farms to release a rehabilitated troop. Rehabilitation takes usually a minimum of 3-4 years, but it could be longer depending on the damage done to the monkeys [especially ex-pets]. To date they have successfully given 29 troops, a total of over 1000 monkeys, their second chance to live free again after, as a persecuted species, they had lost their freedom due to habitat destruction, illegal shootings by farmers, snares, electrocutions, motor vehicle accidents, pet or muti trade.
