DONATE TO THE VERVET MONKEY FOUNDATION

By donating $130 today, you will give a life-saving shelter like this one that protects a troop of monkeys from the sun and heat.

At the Vervet Monkey Foundation, home to over 500 rescued monkeys, temperatures reached an unprecedented 116° F (47° C). The staff were heartbroken when they told me about seeing monkeys suddenly dropping dead from the trees due to heatstroke.

They rushed the sick ones to the veterinary clinic and they’ve been able to save many monkeys. However, hundreds of monkeys desperately need shelters and more will need emergency treatment.

Right now, I’m asking you to please donate whatever you can to save their lives.

Parts of South Africa have been experiencing a severe drought. The trees at the Vervet Monkey Foundation’s sanctuary have lost all their leaves, leaving the monkeys without shade. Staff are building shelters to protect monkeys from the brutal sun, and they depend your support to make it possible.

We’re only at the beginning of the South African summer. More deadly hot days are expected soon. The monkeys urgently need you.

The Vervet Monkey Foundation is a rehabilitation and release program for over 500 vervet monkeys.

The Vervet Monkey Foundation is not funded by the government and therefore relies entirely on contributions from people like you and volunteers.

Donations are vital to help not only provide sanctuary to orphaned vervet monkeys, but in also helping to protect the future of this unique primate.

Hundreds of vervets are shot each year in avoidable conflicts. With your donation, you will make it possible to care for orphaned and injured vervet monkeys.

Furthermore, the Vervet Monkey Foundation educates the general public in how to peacefully co-exist with vervet monkeys. They are the only dedicated vervet monkey rehabilitation sanctuary in the world.

Learn more about the Vervet Monkey Foundation on their website.

Your donation will be processed by the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA), of which the Vervet Monkey Foundation is a member. PASA is registered in the United States as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are fully tax-deductible for U.S. taxpayers.
