Baboon matters was started in 1999. Its aim was to teach humans to understand & tolerate baboons, so that baboons & humans could live in harmony. over the past 10 years the conflict between baboons & humans has been reduced by keeping baboons out of the villages. Baboon matters employs men from masiphumelele who work as baboon monitors. These monitors have a close relation ship with the Chacma baboon troops. Baboon monitors keep the baboons away from human homes in the villages. Fund-rasing is a big part of baboon matters. They started the "Walk with the baboons Guided tour", which is a walk with the baboons in their home territory. It is an amazing experience. They started this to raise funds. You can also feel free to donate money to Baboon Matters. The Baboon Matters shops are located in Kommetjie and Glen Cairn.
