Colobus Conservation in southeast Kenya promotes the conservation, preservation and protection of six species of primates, in particular the Angolan colobus monkey, considered “vulnerable to extinction” by IUCN.
Deforestation and hunting are the greatest threats to colobus monkeys, and there are now fewer than 5,000 remaining in Kenya and only 50,000 worldwide.
Colobus Conservation operates a 24/7 emergency response team for primate welfare, including a veterinary clinic specific for wildlife cases. Since our organization began 20 years ago, we have rehabilitated and released hundreds of monkeys.
In addition to providing veterinary care, Colobus Conservation:
• Builds canopy walkways that allow monkeys to cross roads safely;
• Trims trees around power lines to reduce primate electrocutions;
• Works with communities to provide livelihoods through selling of indigenous trees;
• Provides weekly school groups opportunities to visit and learn how to live alongside wildlife.
Colobus Conservation is also a center for primate research, offering undergraduate and post-graduate students the opportunity to collect and/or analyze data. Download a list of possible research topics.
