Exciting news from the GVI Shimoni base to end a fantastic year in the work conducted to protect the Colobus Monkeys in Kenya.

GVI Shimoni operations were launched in 2006 with the objective of running two long-term research programmes; one based in the marine protected area and one based in Shimoni Forest. Overseen by the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) and qualified GVI staff, the research programs utilize a team of international volunteers and young Kenya KWS Training Institutes graduates to collect data in the field.

An article has been published based on data collected under the GVI/KWS research program. The article is titled "Activity Budgets of Peters’ Angola Black-and-White Colobus (Colobus angolensis palliatus) in an East African Coastal Forest” and was published in African Primates (the Journal of the African section of the IUCN/SSC Primate Specialist Group). 

By combining the donations received from our supporters, the resource of research hours GVI volunteers provide, with the skills and knowledge required to analyze and publish data, we are ensuring that the hard work put in by our volunteers is translating into useful conservation tools for managers, both within Kenya and globally. 

Thank you for your support in 2012 and we hope for another successful year in 2013!
