Rescue and care for Vervet Monkeys in Natal Provice, South Africa

Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, Africa

We rescue and rehab monkeys to get them back to their troop and educate the public about the lifestyle of our Vervets here in South Africa. We are a NPO based in Natal, South Africa in Westville and work where we are called to. Founded by Steve and Carol, who work tirelessly for the good of Vervet Monkeys and any other wild life they are called to. We are all about RESCUE, REHABLITATE AND EDUCATE. Monkey Troops are slowly been decimated and very soon our childrens childrens will not have the pleasure of these precious creatures whose lives every day is a mission, they head out from their sleep area not knowing if they will come back a full troop. 9 out of 10 they wont. They are been run over, shot at and killed by dogs all because man has taken over their original land which they have lived in for eons. We are here to rescue, and try as we might get them back to their troops. We want them back to the troops, like your family, its their family. We need financial help to be able to attend to the rescues, the medical bills, food, goods or wire, wood and such like. Please go to www.monkeyhelpline.co.za and donate to keep us on the road to do our work with monkeys.
