We have just received an update from our friends and partners at the GRI-Zambia Primate Project.
Since the most recent vervet monkey release in Kafue National Park in February, there have been dramas, breakups and new arrivals. Read more about the troops trials and successes here in the 2016 2nd 1/4ly report

The Born Free Foundation, who established the project and have been a major sponsor since 2002, funds the rescues, rehabilitation, anti-poaching and annual release programmes.
Other key international sponsors include the Humane Society International Australia, the Animal Defence Trust and Worldwide Veterinary Service and the Olsen Animal Trust.. Local sponsors and supporters in Zambia include the Blue Lagoon Trust who donate the use of their truck to transport rescued primates to the release site, Chipembele Wildife Education Trust, and Fruit & Veg City who provide out of date produce to supplement the primates’ diet during their rehabilitation. An integral member of the ZPP team is Zambia Wildlife Authority who have provided active support, encouragement and guidance to the project since its inception.
