The methods used to snatch babies from their natural habitats are often highly distressing  and can cause injury and even death.

 

The babies that survive can face long and perilous journeys – often crammed into tiny containers without immediate access to food or water.

about us

Bali Monkey Rescue meets the need for holistic healing and rehabilitation by providing a haven from fear and hunger coming from abused situations. The law of the land does not protect these species so their plight is largely ignored. 

 

The lack of proper education regarding caring for monkeys in captivity forces the cruelest way of life onto these monkeys. Trapped in cages that are too small, teased, tortured with inadequate food sources they are deprived of social interactions with their kind in their natural habitat.

 

Our ongoing commitment and your support allows us to continue with rescue, veterinary costs, food, enrichment and to give them quality of life in captivity. Bali Monkey Rescue offers a new life for the Long Tailed Macaque Monkeys as they transition into a social family group.

Exotic pets are often taken from the wild or intensively captive-bred in conditions that risk their psychological and physical wellbeing. The methods used to snatch these animals from their natural habitats are often extremely distressing for animals and can cause injury and even death. The animals that survive can face long and perilous journeys – often crammed into tiny containers without basic access to food or water.

Captive breeding is often claimed to help with conservation by preventing capture of animals from the wild. But by sustaining demand for exotic pets, this in turn encourages animals to be taken from the wild. Regardless of how they are sourced, ‘exotic’ animals retain their wild instincts – their full range of needs which can never be met in people’s homes.

Bali Monkey Rescue is dedicated to protecting and rehabilitating  Long-Tailed Macaque Monkeys. Without legislation in place to protect these species,  many are subjected to live in chains, filthy cages, neglect and abuse.  

Protection and Rehabilitation of the Long Tailed Macaque Monkey in Bali

Considered a common species in Indonesia Long Tailed Macaques are not protected under Indonesian Law.  There is no safeguard for the abuse they suffer daily. Every year thousands of  Macaque babies are stolen from their mothers, who are killed in their fruitless attempt to protect their young. The stolen babies face an uncertain future. Many are  sold  in local markets, trained as dancing monkeys or used for medical research.

Bali Monkey Rescue is dedicated to protecting and rehabilitating  Long-Tailed Macaque Monkeys. Without legislation in place to protect these species,  many are subjected to live in chains, filthy cages, neglect and abuse. 

Since 2002 we have dedicated ourselves to the care of Macaques that have been victims of illegal animal trafficking. 

We are self-funded so funding is urgently needed to continue, improve and expand our program that supports monkeys coming from abused situations.

Most arrive at BMR with severe behaviour problems such as pacing, rocking, self-harm and food issues.

This is due  to the psychological damage of abuse, starvation and separation from their species. 
 

Few people can provide a lifetime of responsible care.

Many do not receive adequate care or a stable environment and  abandoned in alien and hostile territory.

Bali Monkey Rescue (BMR) is a trauma centre of holistic healing and rehabilitation for abused Long Tailed Macaques with many more on the emergency list.
