Wakuluzu, Friends of the Colobus Trust is a conservation organisation designed to promote the conservation, preservation and protection of primates like the rare Angolan Colobus monkey [Colobus angolensis palliatus] and its coastal forest habitat in Southern Kenya. The Trust was established in 1997 in response to an outcry from local residents about the high number of deaths of the Colobus in the Diani area. Now, six years later, the Trust has numerous projects concerning the wildlife and the citizens of Kenya, including animal welfare, biological/ecological research, community development and education, forest protection and enrichment and eco-tourism awareness programmes.
Our Mission Statement is: To promote, in close co-operation with other organisations and local communities, the conservation, preservation and protection of primates, in particular the Angolan Colobus monkey [Colobus angolensis palliatus] and its associated coastal forest habitat in Kenya.
