ZAMBIAN PRIMATE PROJECT
Game Rangers International is proud to have merged with a dedicated and passionate organisation focused on the conservation and protection of Zambia’s primates. The Zambian Primate Project addresses the illegal wildlife trade by rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing primates back into their natural habitat. Since its inception in 2009, there have been over 750 primates released back into the wild.
The Zambian Primate Project (ZPP) works to rescue, rehabilitate and release primates that have been victims of immense cruelty at the hands of humans. With a similar ethos to GRI, ZPP also works to educate and sensitise local communities in order to reduce the number of primates being taken from the wild. Through this programme, we hope to restore the natural balance of primate populations in Zambia.
*Including primates rescued and released under the Lunga Lushwishi Wildlife Project which operated in 2002 to 2009.
tUSK AWARD FOR CONSERVATION
After witnessing a monkey being stoned by community members as a young boy, Cosmas Mumba dedicated his life to protecting and rescuing primates. Coming from a humble background, Cosmas didn’t finish school, nor has he received any formal training. But he is an exceptional primatologist. We are thrilled to welcome Cosmas to GRI , along with his dedicated team.
adopt a pRIMATE
Adopting a Primate lets you support a rescued primate from its rescue and throughout their rehabilitation. Choose between adopting a Vervet Monkey or a Baboon and follow their journey until its release back to the wild where they belong.
Your support will provide the primate with the care and attention it needs to thrive.
