Snaring of Primates

Confiscated Snares

Colobus as canopy dwellers, have a low risk of being snared, however, sykes, vervets and baboons can be caught in snares as these three species forage on the ground.  We tackle this issue by de-snaring half day per week in the forests around Diani.  In lines, our staff and volunteers walk slowly through the forest and destroy all snares found.  In 2011,  91 snares were removed.
