Help Us Support

Monkeys

We've partnered with the Lwiro Primates Rehabilitation Center to help fund the rescue and support of monkeys & chimps within their habitats.

Founded in 2002 in response to increased poaching, the Lwiro Primate Rehabilitation Center (CRPL) in the Congo provides sanctuary and recovery for orphaned primates, and is recognized for its commitment to high animal welfare standards and conservation efforts.

Meet

Bas The Monkey

Bas, a young baboon, had a close call with danger! He was found tied to a motorbike, amidst bushmeat, about to be sold. By luck, CRPL spotted and stopped the motorbike at night, rescuing Bas. He has trouble moving his right leg and needs an x-ray and tests to diagnose the issue. It's believed his injury, possibly a dislocated femur, came from being tied up to the motorbike.

Larose the Monkey

A grey checked mangabey who was keep in a small cage for several years in a hotel in Bukavu until our team found him. He was poached in the forest and bought as pet by the hotel owner and they even pulled out his canines. He is now happily leaving with other mangabeys in Lwiro. Purchasing a monkey fuels the exotic pet trade. It encourages poachers to continue to kill adult primates so they can take their babies to sell.

Maisha the Monkey

Maisha is a Cercopithecus hamlyni, who was caught in a snare when he was young and unfortunately lost his leg. Fortunately, rangers found him and he has a second chance in Lwiro. Although he is missing a leg, it didn’t prevent him from becoming the alpha male in our hamlyni group. Most animals caught in snares will end up in the cooking pot, while as many as an estimated 90% will be left to die in the bush, and many others will be severely wounded to the point that they are no longer able to feed or hunt, condemning them to a short life of pain and starvation.
