Rescue

Baboons throughout South Africa are in crisis, as evidenced by the increasing number that require rescue, rehabilitation and sanctuary.

Hundreds of infants are orphaned each year in South Africa, primarily through hunting or on farms – where mothers are shot without hesitation, yet the shooter cannot bring himself to kill an infant.

Established, sustainable and reputable sanctuaries are few and far between in South Africa, and Baboon Matters is proud to be associated with the best of these.

While we provide support (financial and otherwise) to sanctuaries, it is simply not possible for this handful of sanctuaries to take in every orphan or older baboon needing rehabilitation, but when logistics allow (space available, permits in place etc) the Trust will facilitate the rescue and relocation of baboons to these semi-wild sanctuaries.

Our long-term dream is to secure funding that would allow us to set up our own semi-wild sanctuary in the Western Cape, but for now we are grateful to the incredibly passionate people at Prime Crew who provide a safe home for so many baboons in need.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO CONTINUE THIS WORK!

In a funding landscape where baboons are not considered a conservation priority, Baboon Matters relies purely on the support of the public to carry out its work. We urgently need financial assistance if we are to continue being a voice for baboons.
