Rescue Monkeys From Cruelty
Donate to Colobus Conservation
Every day that the coronavirus crisis continues, more apes and monkeys are being hunted, tortured, and brutally killed at the hands of humans. Colobus Conservation is responding to about 15 animal cruelty cases every month.
Like other sanctuaries, Colobus Conservation has been financially devastated by the pandemic. Food and medical care for their rescued animals must be their top priority. PASA is working with them to provide emergency funding, but it’s just not enough. Colobus Conservation had to scale back their rescue program, despite the growing number of violent acts against primates.
Colobus Conservation depends on you to save every ape and monkey in need. Each day that the pandemic continues, more primates urgently need to be saved from horrific treatment… and no one knows how long this will last. Will you join us in protecting them from violence?
The next emergency call can happen any moment. With your support, injured and abused monkeys can be rescued before it’s too late.
You can save a life today. Don’t let this chance slip away.
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.
