The Primate Trust
The Primate Trust India founded as a charity in 2005 and provides long term care to orphaned, abused and injured primates Our work is essential, mainly due to the loss of natural habitat, human conflict causing an increasing number of injured and orphaned monkeys. Other monkeys are rescued from being illegally kept as pets or used for begging, often living in appalling conditions.
The Trust has also advised rescue centres throughout India on the care and keeping of primates and does all it can to educate about the importance of good housing, good food and the vital importance of environmental enrichment to stimulate the monkeys active intelligent minds.
Rescue Centre & The Tree House
The Trust provides the monkeys with a stimulating environment and excellent food to ensure both their physical and mental health. They are provided with first class medical treatment and injured monkeys are often given 24 hour care to do everything possible to ensure their recovery.
Orphaned babies, usually handed to the Trust from the Goa Government Forestry Department, are hand reared with as much love and devotion as any human baby would receive and are never left alone during their first year of life.
