Raising funds for the building of a new Samango enclosure to accommodate the 3 Samangos we currently have and any more that we rescue.
On the 14th December 2015, the Vervet Monkey Foundation collected a small 1 week old baby Samango monkey found alone at the side of the road.
The staff and volunteers at the foundation worked 24/7 looking after him and making sure he had the best chance of survival.
Over a year on, Mango has developed in to a happy, playful boy and has been integrated to live with another Samango called Sammy.
Samango monkeys in the wild have large territories and the enclosure our 3 Samango monkeys (Mango, Sammy and Charlie) currently occupy is feeling smaller and smaller as Mango grows up.
Unfortunately due to the unknown circumstances of how Mango was separated from his mother and troop, he cannot be re-released in to the wild.
This is why we are fundraising to build a larger Samango Monkey enclosure at the Vervet Monkey Foundation – to provide a better home for our current Samangos and accommodate any more Samango monkeys that the foundation rescue.
We are doing this campaign thought Just Giving and our goal is 8000 Euros.
