A VOICE FOR BABOONS
For more than 25 years Baboon Matters has been at the forefront of baboon conservation – in the face of ever-increasing urbanization and intensive agriculture, and the resulting escalation in baboon/human conflict.
In 2021 the CT2 troop started to expand their home range from the Vlakkenberg range into Cecelia Forest, a move that had been anticipated by the specialist researchers who advise the CoCT on the management of the baboons. The service provider working at that time made provisions for rangers to continue managing the troop.
However, in April 2022 the CoCT withdrew rangers from the troop stating that they did not manage baboons “in that area” and that the rangers were not successful in that terrain.
In a funding environment where baboons are not considered a conservation priority, Baboon Matters relies purely on the support of the public to carry out its work.HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP!

About Walking Tours
Although a change in policy by the City of Cape Town resulted in our Walking Tours with Baboons being stopped in 2011, we still get regular requests for these tours. Our Walks were incredibly popular, and many hundreds of people developed a deeper appreciation for baboons as a result, but we are unfortunately not allowed to offer them anymore.
