FILM~ VERVET MONKEY FOUNDATION, SOUTH AFRICA
About the Film:
This particular film is special to me. Not only was it my first ever conservation film project, but it was this wildlife volunteer experience that ultimately changed the course of my life (which you can read more about HERE).
This short-film highlights the volunteer experience at the Vervet Monkey Foundation (VMF)- a 23-hectare not-for-profit centre dedicated to the rehabilitation, education and sanctuary for vervet monkeys located in Tzaneen, South Africa. VMF is a member of the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) and The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS).
With no government funding, VMF relies heavily on its volunteers to assist in the day-to-day operations required to care for its 500+ monkeys, as well as helping to run its community outreach programs.
