The commercial pine plantations around Sabie have been conducting ongoing, unscientific and un-ethical killing of hundreds of baboons annually. Further untold stress to individual baboons and the baboon family structures result from cruel methods that are not in line with global best-practice for wildlife management. Countless troops' lives hang in the balance.
We are working to stop the un-ethical killing of baboons through stakeholder engagement and research that will establish implementable and non-lethal management solutions. We require transparency in baboon management practices through accurate reporting and access to records of baboon damage assessments undertaken by plantation owners. Furthermore we advocate change and enforcement of efficient and accountable laws and permit systems.
We aim to secure healthy and sustainable baboon populations within the Sabie area and other Mphumalanga pine plantations in South Africa
