What is the Baboon Action Group?

 

We are a volunteer group that promotes education, raises funds, manages the monitoring process, improves waste management and conducts research on the local troop.

 

 
Our Mission

To encourage and promote the harmonious coexistence of local baboon troops with the residents, business operators and visitors of Pringle Bay; through research-based knowledge, natural feeding practices, and interventions that are environmentally and conservation-friendly.

MONITORING PROGRAM

Monitors

 

The monitors aim to keep the baboon troop on the mountain and out of the village. They are identifiable by their fluorescent vests and identity cards. The monitor programme provides job opportunities for the local community.

 

The alpha male and female have been collared to track their movement, thereby enhancing our monitoring capability.

 

Support our Monitor Program

We receive no funding from the authorities and are entirely dependent on the generosity of residents and visitors to operate the monitoring programme.

 

Please support us by donating via EFT, SnapScan or collection boxes in the village centre shops. For EFT payments please state 'BABOONS' and provide your ERF number in the bank reference.
