Saving Wildlife

Our speciality is baboon rehabilitation, but we are passionate about saving all wildlife.  Smaller mammals, birds & reptiles find themselves in need can be nurtured back to the wild within our nature reserve setting.

 

Specialist Nursery Quarantine Facilities

Baboon orphans are provided with a Primary Care-Giver that is dedicated to the babies needs 24/7.  When the infant is strong and physically able to climb around properly (from about 2.5 months old) we introduce them gently and safely to an adult female baboon, to begin the bonding process.  Baboon surrogate mothers provide a fast-track back to the wild.

Bonding

We have specialised bonding enclosures to focus on the process of bonding orphan baby baboons to a new baboon surrogate mother - for their best chance of remaining wild & living in a natural social group again.

 

Onsite Clinic

To give our animals the best chance & care we have an onsite Veterinary Clinic for emergencies and health check.

 

Second Chances

All creatures great and small matter and deserve a second chance to life.

 

Freedom is the end goal

The release of small mammals and birds is a quick success story from arrival to release.  Social primates are a lot more tricky & take much longer & find safe zones.  C.A.R.E. has pioneered in the rehabilitation for release and has released over 12 formed troops of baboons into the wild, plus several successful re-locations and single male releases!  We are  passionate about keeping our baboons safe and releasing them responsibly.
