Human Wildlife Solutions (HWS) was appointed by Overstrand Municipality to assist with baboon management in baboon affected areas, effective from 1 July 2020 until end June 2023 in a phased-in approach.
The first phase of the programme focused on the Voëlklip troop and taking over the community project in Pringle Bay.
Phase 2 was to add Onrus, Vogelgat and the Betty’s Bay/Kleinmond troop by 1 November 2020.
Kleinmond only has troops for a few weeks a year. It is not expected that there will be any baboons in Kleinmond over the festive season, but if they are seen to be crossing the Palmiet Bridge, they can be stopped and directed back as a short-term solution.
