Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

VERVET MONKEYS

The vervet monkey, Chlorocebus pygerythrus, is a medium-sized monkey, widespread throughout East Africa and south into Southern Africa.  Vervets frequently come into conflict with humans and are adept at raiding crops.  Although not considered to be of high conservation concern, vervets are extensively exploited for bushmeat and the exotic pet trade.  Born Free is working in Malawi and Zambia to help rescue vervets from captive exploitation and return them to the wild.
