The past six months have been the most unusual time in recent global history, with the Corona virus and subsequent lockdowns affecting us all.
Our Baboon Matters July Newsletter contains the array of issues undertaken by Baboon Matters during this lockdown period. I had thought that it would be a very quiet time and of benefit to the baboons, but we have seen that the very reverese is true. The baboons have come into increasing conflict with some residents in urban areas and injuries have been high as a result. In addition, the levels of household waste being dumped inappropriately is an attractant which brings baboons into villages and is a contributing factor in escalating the conflicts.
Please read the July Newsletter for all the details of our efforts to improve the guidelines and ethical decsions that impact the lives of baboons in South Africa.
Thank you for all your on-going support, there is so much to be done and we know that the baboons depend on our efforts to ensure better managmenet decisons in the future.
