Become a Baboon Guardian Today...
The Guardianship programme at C.A.R.E helps us to care for and plan a future for the baboons under rehabilitation at the centre.
If you would like to become a Baboon Guardian and support a baboon at C.A.R.E, we will send you a Guardianship Pack and updates on their progress.
We rely on generosity and donations to enable us to care for the baboons undergoing rehabilitation and we hope that through keeping you updated on your special baboon you may get to know a little of its personality and character as it develops! Choose one of our very special baboons who deserve only the best care and with your help we can provide just that!
If you choose to become a Baboon Guardian, we will send you electronically;
A Guardianship Certificate,
Profile of you baboon,
About C.A.R.E Information Pack.
Followed by email or Facebook updates 3 times a year for your adoptive baboon so that you can get to know them and how they are getting on at the Centre.
Guardianship per year: $180 ($15 per month)
UK bank account holders or South African bank account holders can set up a monthly direct debit to pay over the year instead of one instalment.
Choose from one of the baboons below which need your help and then click the donate button next to your chosen baboon.
Being a guardian means you sponsor the care for that baboon and will get regular updates. It makes a huge difference to the centre.
If you would like to pay by bank transfer instead or set up a monthly payment just send an email to to find out how.
Be a Baboon Guardian for Sunny
His bright, happy personality lead to his name being Sunny. Sunny was confiscated from a family where he was being kept as a pet.
In order for the family to obtained Sunny his mother must have been killed. Primates do not make good pets, and it is illegal to keep a baboon as a pet.
Sunny is lucky to have been confiscated so young, meaning that he could be easily integrated into a troop to become bonded with the other troop members and stand a good chance to be released into the wild.
Be a Baboon Guardian for Maya
Maya was stolen from the wild in 2005 to become a disposable product of the Biomedical Research Industry. Maya was imprisoned in a small cage at the Biomedical Research Holding Facility.
With a number tattoed on the inside of her thigh as a scar of her past she has been given the name Maya at C.A.R.E.; no longer 'just a number'.
Yana is a real sweetheart! This little lady arrived with a leg injury, hair missing and was really skinny.
Yana since arriving at C.A.R.E. has put on weight and is enjoying life in the trees again!
Yana made baboon friends easily, we are so proud to see her thrive.
She arrived skinny, with hair missing and traumatised.
"With the new day comes new strength" - Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor is a new orphan arriving late 2016. She arrived battered and bruised with a skull fracture and open head wound after her mother was killed on the road. This teenie little girl is a fighter, but she may lose the battle. With expert vet care and TLC we are giving her the very best chance.
Eleanor's vet bills with Xrays and medication has been very high, so your sponsorship is really needed.
Keep up to date with her progress and help us give her a real chance of survival and a life in a new baboon family in the wild.
