The objectives include; Conserve and protect the Angolan colobus and its habitat in Kenya; Respond and deliver a high-quality primate rescue and rehabilitation service; Promote the welfare of primates and to reduce the impact of human development on the environment in Diani and south
Colobus Conservation was founded in January 1997 as a not for a profit conservation organization and became registered as a limited company on 5th March 2001. Since that time, the organization evolved at a considerable rate from just a few people working voluntarily, to a well-developed structure with a substantial annual turnover and employing eleven staff members with numerous Kenyan and international volunteers.Our Goals are to:
- Conserve and protect the Angolan colobus and its habitat in Kenya;
- Promote the welfare of primates and to reduce the impact of human development on the environment in Diani and southeastern Kenya;
- Respond and deliver a high-quality primate rescue and rehabilitation service
Volunteers will be assigned specific duties depending upon individual experience, interest and current openings. These will include primate welfare/rescue, primate orphan care & rehabilitation, community outreach, conservation education, human/primate conflict management, reforestation/forest protection, research, primate pest, and waste management.
