Baboon Matters Trust - baboon conservation in South Africa

A VOICE FOR BABOONS

For more than 25 years Baboon Matters has been at the forefront of baboon conservation  – in the face of ever-increasing urbanization and intensive agriculture, and the resulting escalation in baboon/human conflict.

“Baboons could not, surely, have a more passionate advocate. Baboon Matters is doing so much to help both baboons and people.”

 – Jane Goodall

Throughout South Africa baboons are in crisis.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that their numbers are declining – the result of their low conservation status, and a society which sees them as problematic and expendable.  Many thousands are killed around the country each year under cruel and inhumane conditions.

Will you help us create awareness for their plight and put your  #HandsUp4baboons?

In a funding environment where baboons are not considered a conservation priority, Baboon Matters relies purely on the support of the public to carry out its work.

HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP!

BABOON DEFENDERS

Baboon Defenders are a commited group of supporters who stand with us as a voice for baboons. All we ask is that you do what you can, when you can.

On occasion we may ask for your help – whatever it is, it will be what is truly needed, right when it’s needed most!

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the baboon-friendly people at Ayama Wines, who are generously donating R30 from the sale of each bottle of wine in their premium Baboon range to Baboon Matters.

Wine may be ordered directly from Ayama.  This is a real win-win:  Support Baboon Matters and enjoy some award-winning wine at the same time!

What to do - there are baboons in my home!

What to do if a baboon enters your home?

Stay calm!  He will not hurt you unless he feels threatened or cornered.

Make sure he has an exit route like an open window or door.

If you have dogs, lock them out of the way.

About Walking Tours

Although a change in policy by the City of Cape Town resulted in our Walking Tours with Baboons being stopped in 2011, we still get regular requests for these tours.  Our Walks were incredibly popular, and many hundreds of people developed a deeper appreciation for baboons as a result, but we are unfortunately not allowed to offer them anymore.
