Colobus Conservation in southeast Kenya rescues and protects six monkey species, including the Angolan colobus monkey which is vulnerable to extinction.
Deforestation and hunting are the greatest threats to colobus monkeys. Fewer than 5,000 remain in Kenya and only 50,000 worldwide.
Colobus Conservation’s 24/7 emergency response team rescues monkeys who were hit by cars, electrocuted on power lines, and victims of abuse. Their veterinary clinic provides urgent medical treatment. The staff rehabilitate the monkeys, put them into social groups so they can be with other members of their species, and release them to the wild when possible. Since the organization began 20 years ago, they have rehabilitated and released hundreds of monkeys.
In addition to providing emergency rescue and care, Colobus Conservation is addressing the threats to wildlife by:
• Building canopy walkways that allow monkeys to cross roads safely;
• Trimming trees around power lines to reduce primate electrocutions;
• Working with communities to provide livelihoods through selling of indigenous trees;
• Giving school children opportunities to visit and learn how to live alongside wildlife.
Colobus Conservation is also a center for primate research, offering undergraduate and post-graduate students the opportunity to collect and/or analyze data.
You can join Colobus Conservation as a volunteer and be active in on-the-ground conservation initiatives!
