Volunteering in Kenya – Monkeys!


Volunteering in Kenya – Wildlife Conservation Project

Kwale, Kenya

Just a bit from what we are doing here…

We’re taking care of two monkey babies that were found next to their mothers that were killed by electric lines going through the jungle. The babies are three weeks old and really cute.

We also take care of the grown monkeys that are kept in cages: we feed them, clean their cages, and prepare them for the day when they are reintroduced back to nature.  There’s a big problem here because monkeys grab on to the power lines when they are near to trees and get electrocuted by them, so working to solve that problem.

Most of the volunteer assignments during the day are related to educating the local community about the monkeys and the environment at Diani Beach.

We also build rope bridges above roads in the jungle so monkeys are able to cross above the road without getting hit by cars and cut the trees next to the electric lines so monkeys will avoid them. The local people here are very welcoming and the project in located in a big tourist hub of Kenya.  There are a lot of parties and were having a great time.

I hope a lot of people will sign up and continue the work we are doing here! Check out this video of monkeys jumping from tree to tree:
