Monkeys come to us after either being rescued from illegal captivity, fall prey to electrocution after climbing power lines, sustain grave injuries from falls, are orphaned in the wild or are a part of the Human-wildlife conflict.
In the case of electrocution recovery almost entirely depends on how fast treatment is provided after the incident occurs. Once at the treatment unit, they are first stabilised, their injuries evaluated, and then a recovery chart is drawn. Many monkeys sustain severe burns and nerve damage due to electrocution and require a long time to get back on their feet. Till then we make sure their vitals are stable, provide them with pain relief, nurse their wounds which are usually quite severe and place them in isolated enclosures to help them recover. After long term care, physio and laser therapy, these primates slowly regain their strength and start displaying natural behaviours.
Orphan monkeys 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. Orphans require focused attention on their diet plan and specific neo-natal care, as they are already sensitive after being separated from their mothers. We make sure that their rehabilitation milestones are set as per each individual needs, make sure that they are growing strong without any deficiencies. Because they are social animals we introduce them to other monkeys of similar ages so they can form social bonds which increase their survival rate in the wild immensely. Eventually, when they are old enough and have met all their rehabilitation milestones they are released into the wild.
Monkeys that have had a grave injury like a broken bone, need to stay with us for longer and require extensive medical procedures and constant care, their enclosures are designed so they don't put unnecessary strain on the broken limb, remain in isolation, are given timely physio and laser therapy before they are for release. Other times when the injuries are not so grave we make sure the monkeys are stabilised, dress their wounds, make sure they are well hydrated and once they are stable release them back to their natural habitat within a few days.
Our team of experienced veterinarians and wildlife rehabilitators work closely with these monkeys from the time they are rescued, rehabilitated and then released. Watching the animals grow healthy and being released back into the wild is what keeps us going.
