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!
