Bali Monkey Rescue
Few people can provide a lifetime of responsible care to house and manage primates.
To refuse a monkey in need is not an option for us.
Please consider to support us and champion our cause.
Bali Monkey Rescue (BMR) is committed to rehabilitating the Long Tailed Macaque Monkeys that have suffered extreme abuse.
All our rescues were abandoned or passed from home to home, never receiving adequate care or a stable environment. They led dismal lives, and many were kept alone in small cages before coming to BMR.
Our monkeys transition into compatible groups to integrate as a family unit. We meet the demand for healing and rehabilitation with a holistic approach providing a haven from fear and hunger.
Grateful thanks to the amazing Bali Animal Welfare Association Rescue Team, who assist in transporting and assisting our rescues to BMR.
Few people can provide a lifetime of responsible care to house and manage primates. All our rescues were abandoned or passed from home to home, never receiving adequate care or a stable environment. They led dismal lives, and many were kept alone in small cages, often for years before coming to BMR.
A small enclosure soon becomes useless, and a whole house can’t provide these animals with the space, stimulation and opportunities they need to live fulfilling lives. In the wild, primates spend their entire lives in the company of other primates.
For years we have witnessed many heart-breaking stories of the lives of monkeys in dire need of rescuing. The monkeys that arrive at our centre are often malnourished and traumatised with severe behaviour problems such as pacing, rocking, self-harm and food issues. The psychological damage in primates kept as pets shows when they are handed over to our private sanctuary.
Without a foundation of support for the plight of these Bali Monkeys, it relies on private rescuers to carry the costs of this ever growing problem. Sadly our resident monkeys are unable to return to the wild but they will spend the rest of their lives under the protection of Bali Monkey Rescue where they live as an extended family unit.
Without legislation to protect the Macaques, there is no justice for the cruelty they suffer.
After being rescued, the naturally social Macaque Monkeys are often afraid of their own kind and need long term rehabilitation and care to integrate into natural groups. This is important because only then will they be able to live as they were meant to; with other monkeys.
The long-tailed macaques who roam the ancient site are infamous for brazenly robbing unsuspecting tourists in target items that people are most likely to exchange for food, such as electronics, rather than objects that tourists care less. They have little interest in like hairpins or empty camera bags. When targeting temple visitors, adolescent male macaques seem like mobsters.
