Overview
More
Colobus Conservation was established in 1997 as a not-for-profit organisation to promote conservation of the colobus monkeys and address the threats to its survival. The organization works in partnership with local communities to promote the conservation of the colobus, along with other endemic primate species, and the unique coastal forest habitat on which they depend. Today Colobus Conservation programmes focus on habitat conservation and community linkages as well as human/primate conflict management, welfare, education and research. The objectives and work of Colobus Conservation is recognised internationally by AZA Colobus Species Survival Plan (SSP), Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) accreditation and are supported by well known conservationists Jonathon and Angela Scott through their role as Patrons.

Definitely worth a visit. The tour only takes about 45 minutes, but is very informative. Very scary how the natural habitat of so many species has been taken over by humans - this organisation makes an honest contribution to preserving various vulnerable species. Naturally, one...More

I loved the tour and I think the staff could elaborate their tour a little bit more. I still cannot tell vervits and sykes apart that well so it would be useful to show the difference more between the different types of monkeys.
