Video of Community Baboon Sanctuary


The Baboon Santuary’s prime attraction if the Howler Monkey, known locally as baboon. Bermudian Landing was visited by primate researchers in 1981, whose follow up studies highlighted the higher densities of Black Howler Monkeys. After initial consultation with the villagers in 1984, an application was made to WWF USA in 1985 for funds to set up the reserve. Local landowners and the Village Council signed a voluntary management agreement in 1985. The reserve has expanded since to include over 100 landowners who have committed themselves to the land management practices winch accommodate the Howler monkey (known as baboons in Creole).The reserve is also home to 250 bird species and other wildlife like jaguarundis, Baird’s tapir, iguanas and crocodiles.
