Rehabilitation, Education, Sanctuary
The Vervet Monkey Foundation is a non-profit organization, based in Tzaneen in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. We rehabilitate and provide sanctuary to over 500 primates, orphaned, injured, abused, ex-laboratory or unwanted pets. In addition to this we provide:
Our fantastic volunteers assist in many daily tasks around the sanctuary, including: integrating single monkeys into social groups, distributing medication and baby milks, preparing enrichment and monkey food, building and maintaining troop enclosures, assisting with outreach and education, cooking vegan meals for volunteers, and much much more…
We are not a veterinary practice, although there are often opportunities for volunteer vet nurses and veterinarians to assist the monkeys.
