We came across a female baboon recently who was carrying around a dead baby. We felt so sorry for her, you could really see the pain in her eyes. She let nobody near it and refused to let it go... :cry:

Heard this on Monitor, a news/actuality programme on RSG this morning. Renewed conservation efforts are being made in the Tablemountain NP concerning Chacma baboons, with money made available by a government body. Anybody with more and more accurate info? I missed a large bit of the story.

Hi GP, good to see you getting back into the mill of things on the forum again.

It is very interesting to know that this thing is being taken further, as it will hopefully bring an end to an immense problem! This is the link of the last bit i have heard about this initiative.

http://www.sabcnews.com/south_africa/ge ... 02,00.html

I've noticed this, this morning. This is most probably what you were talking about, right?

http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1 ... 668C106350

Here is another report.

http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1 ... 946C401292

Keep us posted if you hear more about it, please. :wink:

Thanks Wildtuinman, exactly what I was looking for. 8) We do tend to forget a baboon is probably the animal most influenced by human encroachment. Good to hear something is done in their favour for a change.
