Vervet Monkey babies 2013Vervet Monkey babies 2013
The vervet monkey baby season starts from the month of October and it is during this time that volunteers at the Vervet Monkey Sanctuary get the opportunity to nurture the orphaned vervet monkeys - consoling them after their loss, teaching them to drink from milk bottles and slowly get them used to the outside world. For those who can volunteer for longer, you will get to watch the magic of introducing them to their foster mothers so that they can live their lives like normal monkeys.
