Babies, Babies, Babies – Infant and Juvenile Macaque Troop Update

Last year we saw an increase in infant long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis) rescues here at WFFT. These little monkeys have just about adjusted to their new lives at WFFT. Some took a little longer to recover from their ordeals, as they were ready to meet others of their own species, they were slowly grouped together. We now have a small troop of 6 little macaques that are happily living together. These little orphans have all had a rather distressing start to life, three of them are missing limbs, now they can start to be little monkeys once again. Grouping infant macaques together allows them to again learn how to be monkeys, the social interactions between these little ones are invaluable for their future development. They are still under the close supervision of our vet team and in the coming months, when they are a little older, they will be introduced into one of our existing macaque troops.
