"Why wait until a species is on the brink of extinction before we try to help?" 

 

Rita Miljo, Founder of C.A.R.E. 1931-2012 (The Centre for Animal Rehabilitation & Education)

STOLEN FROM THE WILD

They all do.

Your actions matter too.

"I am asking for you to help me, to help the furry souls in my care who cannot ask you themselves; these intelligent and sentient primates did not ask to be here, but due to human cruelty, negligence, abuse and greed were orphaned, abused, misplaced and in need of desperate help.  Completely dependent on us, on your generosity, they would die without our care.  I am asking you to please, show your support, show your love and commitment to these animals, show your gratitude for the difference they made to your life, show your appreciation for their existence, show your love. " Stephen Munro, Managing Director, Oct 2020.

Education & Solution Focused

Educating locals & striving to find solution to wildlife conflicts

 

As human population increases wildlife habitat is declining.

 

We are committed to educating local people & tourists and helping them co-exist with wildlife, appreciate wildlife & want to protect wildlife for future generations. 

We are partnered with many schools in the surrounding areas providing educational trips to the centre and regularly give talks too.

We try hard to regularly have exhibition stalls in our local area and overseas, provide information and advice for lodges and farmers and hope to promote empathy, understanding and compassion for baboons.

We love collaborating with other conservation and animal welfare organisations!
