Sad News 27th May 2014

We have been devastated by the loss of three of our rescues, Silva, Phooka and Major.

All died of unknown causes within three days. Postmortems have shown no definitive cause and the general feeling, as they are all Langurs, is that it may have been a virus transmitted to them by the wild population. The good new is that there have been no further incidents and all our remaining monkey seem in very good health.

The monkey rescue centre is for the next three months going to be cared for by two live in volunteers and our dedicated staff as we are going to the UK to do necessary fundraising. They will be posting regular blogs to keep everyone up to date with what ever is happening.
