Saving Hope the Abused Baboon

Saving Hope the Abused Baboon

Author -  Vicki Kenny

Saving the Baboons

July this year saw a baboon beating all odds. 

Having survived months of abuse at the hands of humans – being forced to succumb to the inexplicable cruelty and wrath that humanity so tragically embodies at times, Hope came to the Wildlife Sanctuary, physically and emotionally broken.

But

Devotion, unconditional love, a gentle touch and, above all, the support and intrinsic social behaviour of fellow baboons, saw our Hope embracing her confidence and rising back to the levels of true primate prowess.

And now our darling girl has found her niche in our troop of baboon youngsters, her successful and almost miraculous recovery speaking volumes about the true extent of the conservation dedication that the Wildlife Sanctuary embodies.
