Dido is our new vervet monkey  who calls the IPSF - Home!

Dido arrived from the laboratory and has started her rehabilitation stage. She has been housed next to Martha and Kylie – the latter who she knows from the time they were in the laboratory together.

Soon she will be introduced to both of them and once the three have bonded they will be introduced to other vervets at the sanctuary.

We need your help to finish building the last enclosure so that Kylie, Dido, Martha, Zacki and Layla can at last move to their spacious open enclosure.

Once this last enclosure is built our "vervet project" will be completed!

Kylie arrived from the laboratory and has started her rehabilitation. She has already been introduced to Martha and the two are enjoying each other's company.

Martha and Kylie are Barbados green monkeys (Chlorocebus sabaeus) who were brought to Brabadus by sailors from Africa more than 350 years ago.

We are waiting for the arrival of another female vervet from the same laboratory who is due to enter our sanctuary in September and will join Kylie.

We need your help to finish building the last enclosure so that Kylie and her new friends can move to a spacious open enclosure.

Once this last enclosure is built our "vervet project" will be completed!

We are preparing to receive three new vervet monkeys who will be rescued from Raffa zoo in Gaza by Four Paws International at the end of March.The three vervet monkeys, as well as three baboons arriving with them, will first be put in quarantine in order to negate any zoonotic diseases.

After the quarantine period  the three vervets will start their introduction process to the other vervets at IPSF so that they can join them  in the new vervet enclosures.

Thank you all for your help on this project and please check us on facebook for more news and information.

The third enclosure of our" Vervet Project" is completed and a group of eight rescued and rehabilitated vervet monkeys moved in.

The excitement was great when Amal Amira and Yunes, who were rescued by "Four Paws" from a zoo in Gaza, moved to their new enclosure. A group of five other rescued vervets, who have been living next to them at our monkey- school, was introduced to them in the new enclosure:

Bussani and Mufagaa who were smuggled into Israel in order to be sold as pets on the black market, Siman-Tov and Klansi each lived by themselves in petting zoos before coming to us and old Martha who was living alone in a zoo after her mate had died.

The introduction of the groups in the new enclosure went smoothly and by the end of the day Bussani and Amal – the two little vervet girls- were playing happily in the trees, while the older members of this new introduced group were enjoying grooming each other in the sun.

We are almost finished the fourth and last enclosure and greatly appreciate your support to be able to complete this huge Vervet Project!

Shuki and Buba in their new home
Shuki and Buba in their new home

 

Tammu and his friends have moved to their new enclosure!

Tammu was found in a little cage on a roof of a house when the police were searching for drugs and weapons; Buba was confiscated from a family who kept her tied to a tree; Shuki lived by himself on a petting zoo and Erez and Yoni came from a petting zoo which was closed down.

The five vervets were lucky to come to us at the IPSf where they got the chance to live with other monkeys of their species.

And now their new home is ready and the five monkeys have moved to their new spacious enclosure which was built with your help!

Buba was the first to go out of the night- house and search her new home it didn't take Tammu  much time to joined her.

Erez and Yoni, the older monkeys in the group, preferred to spend the first day in the night- house and only in the second day did they feel brave enough to go out and search their new home.

The third enclosure is almost finished and soon Mufagaa and his group will be moving to their new home too.
