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.




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.

Pringle Bay Baboons WhatsApp


There is always a need for questions and discussions, so in order to keep the Baboon Alerts WA group ONLY for alerts, we created the Pringle Bay Baboons WhatsApp group. Here we post photos, discuss, ask questions, and give advice on the baboons.
