Rescued Vervet Monkeys

Good internet was hard to come by on my recent trip.  I am posting updates now from home (UK) and will post one update per day over the next few days. Here’s the first one:

A few weeks ago Cosmos rescued these Vervet monkeys. They have been named Jonathan and Sue… not sure why these names were chosen ?…..😀😀

One had a rope around his middle… it was so tight around his stomach it was preventing him from eating! Here are photos of the rope and of the cruel owner being arrested and charged. Keeping primates as pets in Zambia is illegal but people still seem to do it. This is all part of the Zambian Primate Project, lead by the amazing Cosmas, which OAT are very proud to be supporting.
