We have 2 rescued monkeys at the lodge (Short tailed Macaques from Sumatra).
They are older monkeys who have been raised as pets by Balinese owners since they were babies.
We found them in poor health and living conditions and bought them from their local owners
to offer them a better life. Rose & Lilly have been with us for 8 years and we love them dearly.
Let's be clear- We don't agree with Monkeys being kept as pets!
Although we would love to see them in their natural place, Monkeys who have been taken from their mothers when they were babies, do not develop the necessary skills to survive in the wild, these monkeys are not from Bali.
Our Sumatran Monkeys have a 5% chance to be returned to Sumatra under current Indonesian non protected animal laws ie - They are very common and not a threatened species.
We have gone to great lengths & considerable costs, to make spacious, interesting and functional cages for our rescued monkeys. We know that our guests would like to see swings and a lot of movement within the cage from our monkeys, but our monkeys are older & with respect we cannot expect for them to act as if they are wild in their natural habitat when they were taken from the wild so young :(
With annual veterinary care and plenty of daily food, they are happy and healthy, we would love that they could be free in the wild, as this is not possible, we know they have a better life now than when we found them.
Guests are welcome to spend time with Rose & Lilly, they have their own unique character.
please feel free to donate to this project if you feel we are not meeting their needs.
Monkeys are sensitive - like humans - They respond to "your vibe & state of mind" instantly.
If you show them a peaceful face - without fear or aggression, they will respond with a loving vibe.
