Cities have grown, much land has been given over to farming, hunting has wiped out entire herds, and the times when a herd of springbok could take days to pass through a Karoo town are long past. With well over 200 species, a short survey of South Africa’s indigenous mammals is a contradiction in terms. A few examples will help to indicate the range. In terms of appeal, primates rate highly. In South Africa they include the nocturnal bushbabies, vervet and samango monkeys, and chacma baboons which – encouraged by irresponsible feeding and under pressure through loss of habitat – have become unpopular as raiders of homes on the Cape Peninsula. The South African animal list is a large one and with the rising of Vermin animals in the towns, one needs to go into the matter. They are roaming around and interrupting the normal developed lifestyle as there is a loss of habitat for the. It’s high time we do what needs to be done for the Africa monkeys. There are many wildlife rehabilitation centres across South Africa, which serve well for the purpose of rehabilitation of monkeys and other vermin animals. One such wildlife rehabilitation centre in South Africa is the monkey rehabilitation or the Riverside Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre (RWRC) near Letsitele in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. Initially established to accommodate and provide temporary sanctuary for wildlife casualties, rehabilitate them to a point of self-support and the ultimate release and introduction into nature where they naturally belong. Now the organization has been ushered with global recognition as one of the best charity providers for monkeys.
Established by Bob and Lynne Venter along with their son, Matthew, the RWRC is working closely with many animals on the South African animal list. Though having a keen interest in the rehabilitation of many South African animals, RWRC is often described as the Primate specialists due to the immense knowledge in primate care. Bob has been acknowledged and is registered as a Primatologist in the World Directory of Primatologists in 2004, Lynne has been registered on the same since 2006. Matthew completed his academic school career in 2005. During 2006 he completed his FGASA Level 1 Field Guide Course; and all animal hospital volunteers agree that he is excellent in ‘teaching’ them about nature and wildlife. Such a noble intention soon met its fate as animal volunteers from all across the globe are flying to help the RWRC. The animal volunteer program is a successful step in making animal enthusiasts aware of the great South African animal list and providing them an opportunity to work closely with many animals. There has been an increase in the number of animal hospital volunteers these days. The day to day activities of the animal hospital volunteers are generally taken care of by Matthew, who is best in teaching them about primates and correlate with young animal volunteers. Animal volunteers from all over the world have been assisting with the daily running of RWRC since 2002. Without the help and enthusiasm for what gets done at Riverside it would have been much more difficult to continue with all daily routines and maintenance at RWRC. The RWRC provides a chance to meet new friends who share your passion for animals and create memories that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Animal volunteers must realize that there is a lot more to operate a rehabilitation centre than just feeding and cleaning and handling animals, here they are also involved in the maintenance and construction of the centre. As an animal volunteer, you are a part of our organization. By working you will have a learning experience with all daily routines at a rehabilitation centre; including hands-on work with animals at RWRC. The animal volunteer program is very handy if you are a student and having holidays, which you want to utilize in wildlife welfare or a sexagenarian with knowledge about animal care and interest in fine upbringing of our misunderstood primate friends. With a very well designed routine for animal care, the animal hospital volunteers can get great knowledge on primate care. Animal hospital volunteers work totally hands on with the animals at the centre, so much so that during the months when the orphaned babies start arriving at RWRC, then animal volunteers take turns with the day and night duties for looking after, feeding and caring for them.
As a result the Vervet African monkey, baboon and predatory species in the South Africa animal list are misunderstood (due to the stigma attached to them being listed as “VERMIN”), it has given them a bad image in the eyes of the public and the farming communities. Because of the exploitation and abuse of these listed and other wildlife species, the Riverside Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre (RWRC) was founded and developed. With a specially designed program, we provide a temporary sanctuary for Africa monkeys and other wildlife casualties that have been taken out of the wild and kept in captivity or being used as pets. It is common knowledge that wild animal species do not make good household pets, especially the African monkey biting the family, friends and breaking nearly all ornaments and other valued household items. At this point they lose their cuteness and the owners must get rid of them, with very limited options. Either to be handed over to the Authorities and other organizations to be killed or to be used in bio-medical research laboratories. To stop the South African animals like these Africa monkeys from being tormented, we request you to hand them over to us. So that we can put our experience to rehabilitate them and send the back to the wild. Our projects demand long studies, especially with the vervet monkeys. Our initial study of the vervet monkey troop and other species dynamics was the classroom in which we gained hands on experience from which our introduction techniques were developed. RWRC is committed and devoted to the study of the African monkey and other wildlife species. In return we can use and offer this knowledge for the betterment and survival of any African monkey or other wild animal species once becoming endangered. Since we are a privately run organization, we gather charity for the monkeys from various sources. The monkey charity is open for all and you can provide all your might to make things straight.
Not just the monkey charity and wildlife rehabilitation in South Africa, we have also gathered our resources for making the same enhancements for monkeys of Costa Rica. Monkeys of Costa Rica rehabilitation centre is equally active in the upscale upbringing of the wild monkeys and other primates. Because of our wildlife rehabilitation success rate, we identified the need to educate human species that are the main cause of the depletion of nature and its inhabitants. Therefore RWRC does not only deal with the welfare of wildlife, it is committed to educate the public, especially the youth, underprivileged and disabled as well as international students and volunteers in sustainable utilization of all natural resources.
