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!
