- HWS (Human Wildlife Solutions) have provided extremely successful interventions in Gordons Bay, and many areas of the Cape Peninsula for more than 9 years, working in the best interests of conservation to separate the WILD animals from domestic environments. They are experts, backed by excellent scientific research and years of experience and knowledge.
- The HWS statistics indicate 98% success in keeping the baboons away from suburbia in the Cape Peninsula. Errant baboons are monitored and targeted, and once a record of errant behavior is known, they are either relocated or euthanized according to strict Protocols adopted by the Baboon Conservation Authorities
- Baboon Action Groups have been formed in the Overberg area, by residents, to protect the baboons and discourage dependency on human food. Some groups favor ‘harmonious co-existence’ with the primates tolerated in suburbia. Others motivate for the primates to be excluded from suburbia and favor limited human interaction if at all.
- City of Cape Town budgets for ongoing baboon management interventions annually. They favor the positive impact it has had on both the communities and wildlife now that specific verifiable evidence indicates between 98% and often 100% success rates in keeping baboons out of suburbia.
How do other Western Cape areas manage their baboon issues
