He's a little monkey with a big heart, and he's finally got his own page! You can sometimes see him in the office watching us work but mostly he's out, free roaming the camp and looking for mischief.

Thor is a cheeky monkey and needs lot of attention. This project will help him live a happy life with plenty of love and support.


Marmosets are native to South America, Thor was brought here to South Africa as a pet and we've recently rescued him, giving him a happy home. Thor helps us here at DAKTARI to teach the children how to be compassionate to animals, his human like face helps develop a connection with the kids, showing them animals have feelings too . Your support will help give him constant love and attention, this also includes help with medical costs, food and enrichment with toys to keep him entertained.

Long-Term Impact

Our long term impact would be to educate local communities around the subject of conservation and wildlife, Thor is happy to help us. Are you?
