Today construction has begun on a new cage for the baboons. The sanctuary currently houses 8 baboons (both yellow and olive species) of various ages. This cage will be attached to the existing monkey cages; with the current cages acting as the night quarters and the new cage being an out door space. Although, all areas will be available to the baboons at all times, except during cleaning. This cage will be in a semi-circle shape, to allow the baboons to have the ability to move away from each other easily.
Also, the dormitory by the forest is progressing well. Ituri and Uvira are both doing well. Both have been a little unwell with colds, but are recovering now.
