Will you breed with the primates who live there?

No we will not breed at all.  All the male primates will have vasectomies before being released into the Monkeyland-KZN forest.

Can I hold, touch or feed the primates at Monkeyland-KZN?

No you cannot. As with all of the SAASA sanctuaries, we have a strict hands-off policy.  Touching and petting monkeys is a form of harrasment. Follow the hashtag #HandsOffOurWildlife
