Mission: Wakuluzu: Friends of the Colobus Trust is a not-for-profit organisation established in 1996 on the southern coast of Kenya to promote the conservation, preservation and protection of primates, in particular the Angolan Black and White Colobus monkey (Colobus angolensis palliates). An active conservation organisation, The Trust is designed to promote the conservation, preservation and protection of primates like the rare Angolan Colobus monkey and its coastal forest habitat in southern Kenya and was established in response to an outcry from local residents about the high number of deaths of the Colobus in the Diani area. Now, 13 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.

Principal Research Programs: Volunteer positions open all year round for specialists and non-specialists. Detailed information can be found on this web page: http://www.colobustrust.org
