Wild Things – June 2017

Baby Irene is a Vervet Monkey that shockingly sustained severe burn wounds to her feet after being dragged along hot tar by a group of young boys. Now safely at our centre and recovering, Irene has merged with a group of other young monkeys that are being cared for in CROW’s primate nursing facility.

In preparation for release, this young group will need to join another group at the centre in order to form a viable troop. As primates are social animals, it is important to build a sustainable troop with adult males, females and juveniles. It takes about 2-3 years for a troop to have properly settled in. After bonding as a troop of over 20 monkeys, they will be released back into the wild where they belong. There is a process of post monitoring release that would need to take place to ensure they are adapting well to their environment and have the best possible chance to thrive in the wild.
