Since 2007, The Darwin Primate Group has been the only official primate rescue centre operating in the Western Cape. Prior to our efforts to help injured and orphaned primates, they were generally euthanased, as there were no organisations that could help them. It is therefore of utmost importance that the presence of the Darwin Primate Group is allowed to continue operating in order to change prevailing destructive attitudes towards primates and other wildlife in this area.
It is also crucial for its future as a sustainable project that funding is raised to attain its objectives:
Objectives: To raise awareness about the ongoing conflict between humans and all primates in South Africa, to develop, publicise and advocate constructive methods to protect primate species and to work towards a safe and protective environment where these primates can be released back to the wild.
