PSI Baboons

BaboonThe Paardeberg has a number of Chacma baboons (Papio ursinus) that from time to time raid landowners’ citrus orchards and vineyards. A Paardeberg baboon project has been proposed to monitor resident baboon troupes and to develop strategies to manage the consequences of human encroachment into baboon territory. Baboon habituation and eco-tourism programmes are also being investigated, similar to those previously on offer through Baboon Matters.
