Leavea Legacy

Plant a tree


Bush 4 Baboons: Leave a positive legacy and plant a tree in our reserve for as little as $20!

We're asking our supporters if they want to leave a positive mark on C.A.R.E. and the planet through donating to buy a tree to plant in the reserve!

There are so many great reasons to want to plant a tree!

We want to be a more sustainable sanctuary, through actively improving our on-site habitat within our "rebuild area" (which is protected within an electric fence and undergoing restoration as it was previously cleared for agriculture in the early 80's).


We are aiming to plant native fruit trees such as marula trees, water berrys,  baobabs, grewias and also some fruit/nut trees which can be harvested; macadamia, avocado and mango. 


What a great way to make the place beautiful, provide natural and juicy food for the wild birds and captive animals undergoing rehabilitation and make a positive contribution to the planet! 


Get involved now and make a BIG POSITIVE IMPACT!

Choose your tree below!

Sclerocarya birrea: Marula trees are indigenous, beautiful and provide delicious, juicy marula fruits and an edible nut.

The vitamin C content of the Marula fruits is eight times higher than that in an orange. The fruits are also rich in oleic acids and antioxidants.

The nuts of these trees are rich in nutritional content having high levels of protein, energy and mineral. They are rich in minerals like iron, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and copper.

Invest in the future and plant a Marula Tree!

Syzygium cordatum is an evergreen, water-loving tree, so will need to be planted in a place where we get lots of water (like the drain from the baboon water dams).

It is a beautiful, nutritious indigenous, fruit bearing tree. 

Monkeys, baboons, bushbabies and birds adore the juicy, vitamin rich fruits!

These trees will provide great shade and hiding places for birds, bugs and other critters!  It'll be wonderful to harvest the berry-like fruits in the future.

Mango trees seem to do really well in our rebuild & we'd love more.  Quick to produce big juicy fruits mango trees are fantastic! Cultivated mostly for edible fruit, the majority of these species are found in nature as wild mangoes.

Mangos contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals, and are a good source of dietary fibre helping to make them a superfood.

We planted two young mango trees last year and already they beared fruits for the baboons to enjoy!

Once these trees are mature they provide wonderful shade and bountiful harvests!

The Boer Bean trees are native and doo well once established.

They are big, board trees with large, shady leaves.  These trees produce bean-like seed pods which are enjoyed by an array of wild animals.

These are wonderful shady trees, look attractive, grow well and have pretty red flowers when the season is right too.

The leaves are enjoyed by caterpillars which provide food for birds, primates, and reptiles.

Knob thorn trees are native and wonderful for screening.

They are very fast growing and their seed pods are enjoyed by baboons, monkeys, birds, squirrels and more.

Knob thorn trees are wonderful for squirrels and birds to nest in; their thorny branches offer protection.

Being fast growing we get lots of browse from them (we can preen them often and the baboons love the new green leaves).
