Mission Statement

  • A program to rehabilitate orphaned and injured primates.
  • A program to research the claims of damage and problems caused by vervet monkeys and offer possible solutions to co-existence.
  • An education program to inform the public of the role that the vervet monkey plays in the eco-system and how to prevent human - vervet conflict.
  • A sanctuary for primates unfortunate enough to be unreleasable
    but still able to have a quality of life to be ambassadors for their species.
  • An opportunity for volunteers to study the life style and environment of the vervet monkey primate species.
  • A project for volunteers to become involved in the conservation and rehabilitation of this unique indigenous primate.
  • Opportunities for volunteers, vet nurses, gap year students and those involved and interested in primate conservation.
  • More recently promotion of a vegetarian, ultimately vegan lifestyle to help sustain the environment, prevent habitat loss, animal suffering and to make a contribution towards helping many of the world's issues.
