Primates come to us in need of help after being rescued from various scenarios.
Monkeys, especially rhesus macaques which are rescued from captivity are integrated into groups with other monkeys who have been rescued either from the wild or from other captive conditions.
Numerous primates are admitted after sustaining extensive injuries from electrocution due to climbing on power lines and their recovery almost entirely depends on how fast treatment is provided after the incident occurs.
Orphaned primates like rhesus and bonnet macaques come to us when their mothers have been killed in a road accident or by another animal.
The orphans are hand raised initially, but once we are sure they can thrive independently, they are desensitised from human interaction at the right time to ensure they don't permanently bond with their caretakers.
Rehabilitation milestones are set to ensure the orphans learn the life skills they will need in the future. Primates are social animals and the orphans are introduced to other primates of similar age as soon as they hit adolescence. Pairing captive monkeys with the ones from the wild provides them with an opportunity to have a higher survival rate when released since they have socially bonded and look out for each other. Often, we coordinate with other NGOs and Forest Departments of nearby districts to transfer animals to them if they have an existing group or get them sent to us so that the socialisation process can be expedited.
Our team of experienced veterinarians and wildlife rehabilitators work closely with these primates from the time they are rescued, rehabilitated and then released.
